NEW DELHI: The Terrorist and Anti-disruptive Activities Act (TADA) court on Thursday acquitted the main accused in the 1993 serial bomb blasts case, Abdul Karim Tunda due to lack of evidence.
Tunda’s lawyer, Shafqat Sultani said that the CBI failed to produce any strong evidence against Abdul Karim Tunda.
“Abdul Karim Tunda is innocent, today the Court gave this judgement. Abdul Karim Tunda has been acquitted in all sections and all acts. CBI prosecution could not produce any concrete piece of evidence before the court in TADA, IPC, Railway Acts, Arms Act, or Explosive Substances Act,” Tunda’s lawyer said.
“We had been saying from the beginning that Abdul Karim Tunda is innocent…Irfan and Hamiduddin have been convicted and the quantum of the sentence will be pronounced shortly,” he added.
The central agency had accused Tunda of being the mastermind in the blasts of four trains on the first anniversary of the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition.
The CBI also charged two other accused, identified as Irfan alias Pappu and Hamiruddin, for a series of blasts in Lucknow, Kanpur, Hyderabad, Surat and Mumbai on the night of 5-6, 1993.
