About Abu Salem

Rajat Nagrath extortion case

In July 09, a Delhi court framed charges of extortion and criminal conspiracy against underworld don Salem in connection with the Rajat Nagrath extortion case. In August 09, the Court rejected Salem's plea on dropping MCOCA charges in an extortion case lodged in 2002.

1993 Mumbai Blast case

Abu Salem is accused to have been involved in the 1993 Mumbai blast case that killed 250. The CBI has charged Abu Salem with organised crime. Abu Salem was extradited from Portugal on November 11, 2005. He was arrested in Portugal in 2002 along with his girlfriend Monica Bedi.

Abu Salem was extradited from Portugal after the Indian government has given Portugal an 'executive assurance' that Salem will not be given death penalty or any jail term that entails more than 25 years. However, Delhi and Mumbai police have slapped charges against Abu Salem invoking death penalty against him.

The CBI is likely to approach the Supreme Court seeking withdrawal of additional charges slapped on Abu Salem by Delhi and Mumbai police after seeking legal opinion.
