Indian court sentences Jahidul Islam Mizan - also known as Boma Mizan - to 29 years of prison for the Khagragarh blast of 2014.

An Indian court sentenced Jahidul Islam Mizan alias Kausar - also known as Boma Mizan - to 29 years of imprisonment for the Khagragarh blast of 2014.

Special NIA Judge Suvendu Samanta sentenced five years of imprisonment to Sheikh Kausar, on five counts and two years each for other offences, which he will have to serve consecutively. Kausar confessed before a court, and will also have to pay a fine of Rs 29,000 for his offences.

NIA counsel Shyamal Ghosh said that Kausar was convicted under various sections of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), as he waged war against entities associated with the Indian government, the Foreigners Act and created conspiracies.

Links to Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), a well known terror group, were identified in the blast on October 2 2014.

Following Kausar’s sentencing, 31 out of the total 33 accused in the infamous case have been found guilty, and have subsequently been sentenced. The other two accused have escaped.

The preliminary charge sheet was filed in March 2015 by the NIA. It stated that there was a "conspiracy of JMB, a proscribed organization in Bangladesh, to overthrow the existing government in Bangladesh through violent terrorist acts,” reports the New Indian Express.

The investigation was initially taken over by the state CID, and was later transferred to the NIA within a couple of days.
