1993 Mumbai blasts case: Supreme Court to hear final hearing in January 2011
New Delhi, July 26 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Monday decided to hear the appeal proceedings against the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convicts from January 11, 2011.
A bench comprising Justices P Sathasivam and B S Chauhan also issued notices to the convicts on the appeal of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) seeking enhancement of punishment for them.
The bench, however, inquired from Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium the delay of 880 days in filing the appeal for enhancement of punishment.
Subramanium attributed the delay to the voluminous 4,300-page judgement of the special and Disruptive Activities (TADA) court, which, he said, the prosecution had to minutely examine before filing the appeal.
The special TADA court had convicted 100 people in the Mumbai blasts case.
Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt was sentenced to six years in jail under the Arms Act, but was exonerated for terror offences under the stringent TADA act.t least 257 people were killed and over 700 others injured in the blast.
12 convicts were awarded death sentence and 20 were given life imprisonment in the blast case. (ANI)
