Cochin: The Lakshadweep court sentenced Nationalist Congress MP Mohammad Faisal from Lakshadweep to 10 years in prison in the attempted murder case.
Mohammad Faisal was elected to the Lok Sabha from Lakshadweep on behalf of the Nationalist Congress Party. During the 2009 Lok Sabha election campaign, he had a clash with former Lakshadweep MP and late PM Saeed’s son-in-law Muhammad Saleh. Then Muhammad Faisal, his brothers and many others attacked Muhammad Saleh severely. Mohammed Saleh, who was seriously injured, was brought to Kochi by plane and admitted to a private hospital. Subsequently, a case of attempted murder was registered against Mohammad Faisal and some of his brothers.
The Lakshadweep court, which has now given a verdict in this case, has sentenced MP Mohammad Faisal to 10 years in prison. As he has received a prison sentence of more than 2 years, if he appeals against this verdict in the Kerala High Court and does not get relief, the political future of Mohammad Faisal may be affected.
