A man convicted in the 1993 Mumbai blast case for taking a firearm from Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt and delivering it to some other person, was today sentenced to 10-year rigorous imprisonment by a Special TADA court here.

Mumbai, May 21 : A man convicted in the 1993 Mumbai blast case for taking a firearm from Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt and delivering it to some other person, was today sentenced to 10-year rigorous imprisonment by a Special TADA court here.

"The court has announced sentence to one accused namely Manjur Ahmed. On January 18 (1991), he took an AK 56 rifle from cine actor Sanjay Dutt and delivered it to other co-accused. And therefore, the court has held him guilty and sentenced him 10 years of rigorous imprisonment and a fine of 50,000 rupees," said Ujjwal Nikam, Special Public Prosecutor.

Earlier this morning, the court sentenced four police constables to six-year rigorous imprisonment in connection with the case.

The court had convicted the cops--Ashok Muleshwar, P M Mahadik, Ramesh Mali and SY Pashilkar--for assisting in bringing explosives into Mumbai before the blasts.

They were held guilty of providing assistance in a terrorist act, for which an individual can get imprisonment from five years to a life term.

The TADA court began pronouncing the quantum of sentence on the 100 convicts in the case on Friday. On the first day, it sentenced five people to three years imprisonment.

While Shaikhdhare and Bhoinkar were convicted for providing trawlers for bringing in RDX and weapons at Shekhadi, Alware and Adhikari were convicted for participation in the landing of the consignment.

The court has already formally acquitted 23 accused in the blast case, which killed 257 people and left over 700 people injured.

The prime accused in the case, Tiger Memon and his family are still absconding, and are reportedly living in Pakistan.
