Two convicted in 1993 Jaipur bomb blasts case
A Pa-trained militant was sentenced to 20 years in jail, while his accomplice awarded 15-year prison term for triggering the 1993 serial blasts.
Ajmer: A Pakistan-trained militant was on Tuesday sentenced to 20 years in jail, while his accomplice awarded 15-year prison term for triggering the 1993 serial blasts in Jaipur.
A special anti-terror court, while sentencing the duo, Abrer Rehmat alias Kari and his accomplice Jalis Ansari, also imposed a fine of Rs 13,500 and 11,000 respectively on them.
The Jaipur Special TADA court of Kamal Kumar Bagdi sentenced the duo after convicting them for various offences under the now repealed anti-terror law, Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA).
They were also convicted under various sections of the Explosive Substances Act.
The court, however, acquitted two others -- Jamal Alvi and Habib Ahmad -- in the case.
The blasts took place at three places under Kotwali, Jalupura and Manak Chawk police station circles in Jaipur on September 30, 1993.
A boy was injured in the blast, while properties worth rupees several lakhs suffered damages.
The prosecution had told the court that Pakistan-trained Kari had planted the bombs in tiffin boxes, while Ansari had mastermind the terror operation. The state government had referred the case for investigation to the crime branch, which had arrested them.
All the four had been under judicial custody in Ajmer Jail since December 20, 1998.
