Former sub-inspector awarded concurrent life term in 93 Mumbai blast

A special TADA (Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Prevention Act) Court on Tuesday sentenced a former police sub-inspector V K Patil to life term for allowing a truck laden with arms and explosives to reach Mumbai despite having intercepted it in a raid, prior to 1993 Mumbai serial blasts.

Mumbai, May 22 : A special TADA (Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Prevention Act) Court on Tuesday sentenced a former police sub-inspector V K Patil to life term for allowing a truck laden with arms and explosives to reach Mumbai despite having intercepted it in a raid, prior to 1993 Mumbai serial blasts.

Patil got life term on two charges, of criminal conspiracy and aiding and abetting a terrorist act while he was posted at Srivardhan police station at Raigad, for which he was found guilty.

Both life sentences will run simultaneously, the court said.

The court also imposed a fine of two lakh rupees on Patil, failure to give it would amount to an additional rigorous imprisonment of three years each.

The judge lashed out at Patil for letting off the arms laden truck despite having intercepted it, after accepting a bribe of seven lakh rupees.

He observed that the charges against Patil were more serious than those against the four constables - Ashok Muleshwar, P M Mahadik, Ramesh Mali and SY Pashilkar, who accompanied him during the raid.

The four constables were on Monday granted six-year rigorous imprisonment.

It was for the first time in judicial history that a police officer has been awarded concurrent life term on two counts, said special public prosecutor, Ujjwal Nikam said after the proceedings.

Patil is also the first among the 100 persons convicted in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, to be awarded life term.
