CBI to seek Salem's extradition

December 13, 2002 17:01 IST

A Central Bureau of Investigation officer is leaving for Lisbon on Friday to file a formal extradition request for underworld don Abu Salem with the Portuguese authorities.

In keeping with Portuguese laws, India has assured Portugal that Salem, wanted in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case among others, will not be awarded the death penalty, CBI Director P C Sharma told reporters in Delhi.

The gangster is in custody in Portugal for staying in Lisbon on the basis of forged documents.
