Indore: A local court Thursday awarded five-year rigorous imprisonment to three activists of banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) in a 2008 case.
District and Sessions court Judge Surendra Singh Sisodiya held Khalid, Sami and Shahja guilty for possessing arms and distributing objectionable pamphlets in Shyamnagar area of Dhar in 2008 and imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on each of them.
The court acquitted Balliudeen, Mukeedeen and Nafesar for want of evidence, public prosecutor Ravindra Singh Gaur said.
