Kochi: The National Investigating Agency (NIA)
Wednesday filed the final chargesheet in a special court here
against 24 accused including a Pakistan national in the
“Kahmir terror recruitment” case, relating to enrolment of
several youths from Kerala for anti-national activities.

The case against the accused, including Pakistani national
Wali Abdul Rahiman, was that they had conspired with the
banned outfit Leshkar-e-Toiba and recruited several youths
from Kerala to carry out anti-national activities in Jammu
and Kashmir.

The youths, recruited in 2006, were given armed training
in terrorist modules to wage war against India, the
chargesheet said.

Wali, the main link between the LeT and the Keralites, has
been absconding while four youths recruited from northern
districts of Kerala, died in encounters with security forces
in 2008.

So far 10 persons had been arrested in the case while the
absconding included the first accused Abdul Jaleel
from Kerala.

The accused included four youths killed in encounters with
the security personnel and T Nazir, who is now in jail in
connection with the Bangalore bomb blasts case.
