Mehidpur resident Sajid Nagori, one of the three men on whom the Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) had declared a reward of Rs. 15,000 earlier this month, surrendered at the Chief Judicial Magistrate’s court in Bhopal on Thursday. He was sent to ATS remand until February 7.
Earlier this month, the ATS had declared a reward for the arrest of Sajid and Majid Nagori from Mehidpur, Ujjain and Gulrez from Indore. ATS Inspector General Sanjeev Shami told The Hindu earlier that the men — who were inspired by the ideology of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and the Al Qaeda — had pending cases under the Explosives Substances Act and the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act. He added that they knew how to make Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).
Sajid and Majid have surrendered, while Gulrez is still absconding. Sajid also faces charges of attempt to murder. The police have not revealed which terrorist incidents these men have participated in.
