    A special tribunal has upheld the ban imposed by the Centre on Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), which has links with Pakistan-based terrorist outfits including Lashkar-e-Taiba and its front, Indian Mujahideen.

    Justice V K Shali of the Delhi High Court, who heads the tribunal, submitted the report to the Home Ministry confirming the ban on SIMI.

    The order came after the Home Ministry on February 3 extended the ban on SIMI by two more years, a Home Ministry spokesperson said today.

    SIMI was declared outlawed on September 27, 2001 when it came to light that the outfit was involved in terrorist activities.

    The group was having close contacts with LeT and was charged with carrying out several terror strikes along with Indian Mujahideen.

    Though SIMI had challenged the government's move in various courts and also before the Special Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act tribunals on a number of occasions, it did not get any relief.

    The tribunal consisting of Justice Shali, a sitting Judge of Delhi High Court, was constituted to adjudicate whether there is sufficient cause for declaring the association unlawful.
