7/11 Blasts Verdict | Out Of 13 Accused 12 Convicted

Nine years after seven RDX bombs kept in Mumbai suburban trains exploded killing 188 people, a MCOCA court in Mumbai on Friday (September 11) convicted 12 persons in the serial blasts case. Delivering the verdict, the Special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) Judge Yatin D Shinde pronounced 12 accused as guilty while acquitting one accused Abdul Wahid Shaikh (34) in the case. The 12 accused who were convicted today are: Kamal Ahamed Ansari (37), Tanvir Ahmed Ansari (37), Mohd Faisal Shaikh (36), Ehtesham Siddiqui (30), Mohammad Majid Shafi (32), Shaikh Alam Shaikh (41), Mohd Sajid Ansari (34), Muzzammil Shaikh (27), Soheil Mehmood Shaikh (43), Zamir Ahmad Shaikh (36), Naveed Hussain Khan (30) and Asif Khan (38). However, Azam Chima, along with 14 others, are still absconding in the case. Arguments for the quantum of sentence are likely to begin on Monday. In the trial that lasted for eight years, the prosecution examined 192 witnesses, including eight Indian Police Service (IPS) and five Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers as well as 18 doctors.
