The National Investigation Agency (NIA) Special Court in Kolkata convicted two Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) terrorists and sentenced them to seven years of rigorous imprisonment on Tuesday.

The two convicts have been identified as Sahadat Hussain and Umar Farooque who were also fined Rs26,000 and Rs33,000 respectively.

Both the accused - members of a banned terrorist outfit in Bangladesh - pleaded guilty in court, reports Zeenews. 

"Sahadat Hussain convicted u/s 120B, 121A, 125 of IPC, Sections 18 & 38 of UA(P) Act and Section 14 of Foreigners Act and Umar Farooque convicted u/s 120B, 121A, 125, 468, 471 & 474 of IPC, Sections 18 & 38 of UA(P) Act and Section 14 of Foreigners Act," said a release from NIA.

The case was initially registered by Kolkata Police's Special Task Force (STF) and they had arrested five members of ABT in Kolkata.

The NIA took over the case on March 1, 2018, and the investigation revealed that the Bangladeshi members of ABT entered India in 2016 to commit terrorist acts in India.

The accused persons travelled and stayed at Hyderabad, Pune, and Mumbai in the guise of labourers.

The investigation also revealed that the accused tried to procure chemicals from a shop in Patna and tried to build hide-outs in Ranchi.

The accused also tried to procure arms and ammunition in Kolkata and several incriminating materials like the map of Sealdah Railway Station, Howrah Bridge, literature on explosives and bomb-making, fake Aadhaar Card, and fake PAN Card were reportedly seized from their possession.
