93 Mumbai blasts: Court to pronounce sentence for five convicts

A special TADA (Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention Act) Court is likely to pronounce sentence of a former police sub-inspector in connection with the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case here today.

Mumbai, May 22 : A special TADA (Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention Act) Court is likely to pronounce sentence of a former police sub-inspector in connection with the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case here today.

Vijay Patil has been found guilty of conspiracy and taking bribe to allow passage of RDX from Raigad to Mumbai. The prosecution has sought death penalty.

The court on Monday had sentenced four police constables - Ashok Muleshwar, P M Mahadik, Ramesh Mali and SY Pashilkar - to six-year rigorous imprisonment for assisting in bringing explosives into Mumbai before the blasts.

The court is also expected to pronounce sentences on other four convicted in the case. They are Tukaram Dhondu Surve, Sajjad Alam, Uttam Potdar and Mohd Kasam Lajpuria.

Surve was watchman at Wangni radio tower, where RDX and weapons were unloaded and repacked for their further dispatch.

Alam has been found guilty for taking part in landing operations at Shekhadi coast. Other two have been convicted for participating in landing of RDX at Dighi coast prior to blasts.

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.

The five sent to jail were Yeshwant Bhoinkar, Abbas Dawood Shaikhdare, Shajehan Ibrahim Shaikhdhare, Rashid Alware and Sharif Khan Adhikari.

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.
