Death for all three accused in 2003 Mumbai blasts case

Six years after the twin blasts at Gateway of India and Zaveri Bazaar, a special Prevention of Terrorism Act Court in Mumbai has given death sentence to all the three accused in the heinous crime.

Hanif Syed, his wife, Fehmida, and third conspirator Ashrat Ansari were convicted for planting the bombs on August 25, 2003, which left 54 people dead. The three have been held guilty for murder and conspiracy under Sections 302, 307, 427 and 120B of the Indian Penal Code.
