HC confirms death sentence of LeT ultra
August 04, 2006 19:46 IST
The Delhi high court on Friday confirmed the death sentence awarded to alleged Lashkar-e-Tayiba terrorist Hussain, who was charged with engineering a bomb blast in a bus in Delhi in December 1997 that killed four people.
Showing any mercy to people like Hussain, responsible for engineering bomb blasts to kill innocent people, would be a mockery of justice, a Division Bench of Justices R S Sodhi and P K Bhasin said in a strongly-worded judgement.
Twenty people were injured in the blast that occurred in a Blueline bus at the Rampura bus stop.
