August 11, 2017  21:22
NCP leader Dhanjay Munde on Friday claimed in the Legislative Council that gangster and 1993 Mumbai blasts convict Abu Salem was found in possession of mobile phone in the jail premises.

On July 4, Special Public Prosecutor Deepak Salvi sought life imprisonment for Salem from the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act Court.

Earlier in the month, six out of seven accused, including Abu Salem, were convicted by a special TADA court, in connection with the 1993 Mumbai serial blast case.

The others who have been convicted are Mustafa Dossa, Riyaz Siddique, Firoz Khan, Tahir Merchant, and Karimullah Shaikh.

Dossa, however, died following a heart attack on June 28, 2017 in Mumbai.

However, all accused were acquitted on the charges of waging a war against the nation.
