New Delhi: A Delhi court on Wednesday convicted two
Bangladeshi nationals for possessing explosives four years ago
but acquitted them of the serious charge of being members of
banned terror outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba and waging a war against
the country.

Additional Sessions Judge SK Gautam held Alamgir Hussian
Roni and Abdul Razzaq alias Aslam under the Explosive
Substances Act.

The court absolved the two Bangladeshi nationals of the
grave charges of waging a war against the country under IPC
and being members of LeT under the Unlawful Activities
(Prevention) Act after the Delhi police failed to substantiate
the allegations against them.

The court, which held the two guilty only under the
provisions of the Explosive Substances Act, is expected to
pronounce the sentence against them on May 17.

Roni and Aslman were apprehended by a team of Delhi
Police`s Special Cell sleuths led by the then Assistant
Commissioner of Police (ACP) Sanjeev Kumar Yadav from Old
Delhi Railway Station on a tip-off on October 16, 2006.
