Suspected militants belonging to the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), who were killed in an alleged police encounter in Bhopal last month, have been hailed as 'martyrs'.

Specially-prepared epigraphs mentioning five of the undertrials as martyrs have been seen on five graves in Bhopal.

Bodies of seven of the eight Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) activists, who were killed following a daring prison break in Khandwa, were laid to rest in different parts of Madhya Pradesh amid tight security on November 1.

Bodies of five deceased—Amjad Khan, Zakir Hussain, Mohammad Salik, Sheikh Mehboob and Aqueel Khilji—were buried in their home district Khandwa.
