Six persons, suspected to have links with terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba, were on Saturday convicted by a local court for the 2005 terror attack at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore.

The court convicted Mohammed Raza-ul-Rehman, Afzal Pasha, Mehboob Ibrahim, Miruddin Khan, Nizamuddin and Munna on charge of plotting the terror attack and waging war against the country, but acquitted another man charged with conspiracy.

Judge VR Revanakara said the quantum of sentence would be pronounced on December 19 after hearing arguments by the prosecution and defence.

The militants had opened fire at delegates emerging out of an international conference at the IISc on December 28, 2005, killing a retired professor of IIT-Delhi and injuring four others.

Police had filed cases of sedition, terrorism and religious disharmony, among others, against the accused.

Police had arrested Pasha on January 14, 2006, along with six others.
