The trial in the first Islamic State (IS)-related case registered in Kerala, in which 15 persons from Kasaragod District migrated to Afghanistan to join the terror group, began at the National Investigation Agency (NIA) Court in Kochi on November 9, reports The New Indian Express. NIA-II Court judge Santhosh Kumar examined three witnesses on the first day of the trial. The lone arrested person, Yasmeen Mohammed Zahid of Bihar was produced at the court as part of the trial.

“The witnesses examined by the court on the first day include the brother of Abdulla Abdul Rashid of Kasaragod, his aunt and a village officer, who is an official witness. Abdul Abdulla Rashid is the prime accused in the case and his brother has deposed some crucial matters regarding the case before the judge. As many as five witnesses will be examined on Friday,” an NIA officer said. Though there are 16 accused persons in the case, the NIA had filed the first chargesheet against Rashid and Yasmeen. The probe against the other accused is still proceeding. There are 68 prosecution witnesses in the case. The witness examination will be completed on December 4.
