New Delhi: A Delhi court is likely to pronounce on Friday the quantum of sentence against six HuJI militants, including three Pakistanis, who were convicted for conspiring to kidnap cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly in 2002 to secure the release of two jailed terrorists.

Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Pinki would hear the arguments on sentence against the convicts.

Earlier, the court had convicted the Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami (HuJI) terrorists under various provisons of stringent anti-terror law POTA (Prevention of Terrorism Act) and other penal laws.

Those convicted included three Pakistan-based militants, Tariq Mohammed, Arshad Khan and Ashfaq Ahmed.

Besides them, three Indians - Mufti Israr, Ghulam Qadir Bhatt and Ghulam Mohd Dar - were also held guilty in the case.

The accused had conspired to kidnap the cricketers for securing the release of two jailed HuJI terrorists Nasarullah Langrial and Abdul Rahim who were then lodged in jails in New Delhi.

The HUJI terrorists are also accused of plotting to assassinate former President APJ Abdul Kalam during his visit to Patna in 2002.

The Delhi Police had also charged them with conspiring to attack the Bhaba Atomic Research Centre in Mumbai.
