BHOPAL: Day after the Modi tsunami swept the country, 18 SIMI operatives led by the banned outfit's Madhya Pradesh chief, Abu Faisal, shouted pro-Taliban slogans and threatened to eliminate Narendra Modi after being produced in a court in Bhopal on Saturday.

A case was registered against SIMI activists for making provocative statements. "They have been booked under Section 153 (B) and 294 A of IPC for making assertions prejudicial to national integration," said a police officer, Brajesh Bhargava.

Faisal and 17 other SIMI members were brought to court of chief judicial magistrate Pankaj Singh Maheswari for hearing in terror-related cases and Khandwa jailbreak. SIMI operatives Abu Faisal alias Doctor, Aslam Ayub Sheikh Mehboob, Mohd Ejajuddin, Zakir Badul and Amjad Khan alias Dawood and Abid Mirza had smashed a ventilator of their barrack and scaled the wall of the Khandwa jail with blankets on October 2, 2013. One of them, Abid Mirza, was caught and thrashed by locals who mistook him for a thief. Five others were later arrested on December 24 from Barwani.

City police is likely to make a formal arrest of 18 alleged members of outlawed of Student Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), for having shouted anti-Modi and pro-Taliban slogans while being produced before the court on Saturday.

They were produced for hearing in the court of special judge B S Bhadoria and chief judicial magistrate Pankaj Singh Maheshwari where they started shouting slogans after seeing a group of media persons.

"Taliban zindabad" (long live Taliban) and "Ab Modi ki baari hai" (Now, it's Modi's turn) — they shouted while being taken to the police van.

They were booked under Section 153 B (Imputations, assertions prejudicial to national-integration) at the MP Nagar police station for the offence. "We have collected statement of the jail and SAF staff who were with the SIMI operative. Formal arrest will be made soon," said Anshuman Singh, superintendent of police, Bhopal. He said the episode was not a planned one. "They wanted media attention, nothing else. We don't think there was a conspiracy behind this incident," he told Times of India.
