Wife of `98 Coimbatore blasts convict appeals for his release
Coimbatore: Wife of S A Basha, a life convict in the 1998 serial bomb blasts here, has appealed to the city Police Commissioner to take steps to set him free.
In a petition submitted to Commissioner P Shivanandi,
Razitha Begum mentioned that Basha, founder of banned Al-Umma,
had already undergone more than 10 years in the prison,
including the period as undertrial.
The authorities would release him, if local police
agreed for it, she claimed and requested the Commissioner to
recommend for his release at the earliest.
Basha is the prime accused in the cases relating to the
bomb explosions that killed 58 people and injured nearly 250
in February, 1998 coinciding with the election meeting of BJP
leader L K Advani in a city area.
A special court that tried the cases had convicted Basha
of criminal conspiracy among other charges.
