The Bombay high court today rejected 1993 Mumbai bombings convict Abu Salem's plea seeking parole of 45 days to get married, ANI reported.

Salem had approached the high court seeking 45 days' parole to marry Mumbra resident Kausar Bahar.

Salem, who is lodged in Taloja jail, challenged in court the orders rejecting his parole plea. 

The petition came up for hearing before a division bench of acting chief justice Vijaya Kapse Tahilramani and Justice Mahesh Sonak on Tuesday.

According to the police, Salem, who is in his 50s, was to tie the knot, reportedly for the third time, with Kausar.

In 2015, the Mumbra woman had submitted an application in the special TADA court, which was hearing the blasts case, stating she wanted to marry Salem and he, too, had agreed to tie the knot with her, the official said.

This was the same woman who had claimed to have married Salem during a train journey to Uttar Pradesh in 2014, he said.

The gangster, extradited from Portugal in 2005, originally hails from Azamgarh district of Uttar Pradesh.
