Seven including four custom officers sentenced in 1993 Mumbai blasts

Seven persons, including four custom officers, convicted in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, have been awarded sentences by the Terrorists and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Court (TADA) today.

Mumbai, May 29 : Seven persons, including four custom officers, convicted in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, have been awarded sentences by the Terrorists and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Court (TADA) today.

Special TADA judge P D Kode awarded sentences to the four customs officers, R K Singh, Jaywant Gurav, Mohammed Sultan Sayeed, Sudhanwa Talvdekar. Ayub Ibrahim Qureshi and Ehsaan Mohammed Qureshi were found guilty of illegal possession of arms and explosives while Zameer Sayyed Ismail Kadri was held guilty for conspiracy.

Kadri, an associate of absconding accused Mohammed Dossa, was awarded life term and imposed a fine of 1.25 lakh rupees.

While awarding sentence to Kadri, Justice Kode observed that Kadri did not deserve leniency although he could be held guilty of conspiracy only to the extent of concealing a part of the consignment which had landed at Dighi coast and later attempting to destroy evidence by dumping it in a creek.

Since Kadri had tried to conceal the weapons much after the blasts and was absconding after a proclamation notice was issued against him, therefore, he was awarded a life term, Kode added.

R K Singh, former Assistant Commissioner of Customs at Alibaug, was awarded nine years' rigorous imprisonment and imposed a fine of three lakhs rupees for allowing landing of arms and explosives at the Dighi and Shekhadi Coasts after accepting a bribe.

Hundred persons have been convicted by the TADA Court for their involvement in engineering the serial blasts in the city on March 12, 1993 killing 257 and over 200 wounded.
