'Dawood, Tiger Memon can't be convicted'

The designated TADA court on Wednesday found guilty four associates of prime absconding accused Tiger Memon.

These include his girlfriend Mobina Baya and his driver Rafiq Madi, for their involvement in the serial blasts in the metropolis on March 12, 1993.

TADA Judge P D Kode, while convicting Baya, Madi and two other of his associates -- Ahmed Shah alias Salim Durani and Aziz Shaikh -- cancelled their bail and ordered they be taken in custody.

However, the court has released Mobina Baya on bail, following an application moved by her seeking time to surrender on humanitarian grounds, as she is now a married woman and mother of two children.

The court has allowed her application on a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh till the court decides her quantum of punishment.

All the four accused, who were convicted, were found guilty under the various sections of TADA, Arms and Explosives Act but were not found guilty for participating in the conspiracy under Section 120-B of Indian Penal Code.
