Bangalore: Six people, suspected to be members of terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), were Saturday held guilty of the attack on the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) here in 2005 that killed a retired professor.

The quantum of punishment will be announced Dec 19 by Judge V. R. Revankar of the fast track court here.

The convicted are Mohammed Riaz-ur-Rehman of Andhra Pradesh, Afzar Pasha, Mehboob Ibrahim Saab Chopdar, Noorulla Khan, Mohammed Irfan (28) and Nazim Uddin alias Munna, all from Karnataka.

Revankar acquitted the seventh accused, Chandh Pasha of Bangalore.

The six were found guilty of the first major terror attack in Bangalore. In the attack on the evening of Dec 28, 2005, delegates coming out of an international conference at the famed institute in north Bangalore were fired on, leading to the death of M.C. Puri, a retired professor of Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, and injuries to four people.

The seven were arrested Jan 14, 2006, and charged with sedition, terrorism and religious disharmony.

All the seven were in central prison at Parappana Agrahara in east Bangalore.
