1993 Serial Blasts Case: TADA Court Acquits Abdul Karim

The Terrorist and Anti-Disruptive Activities Act court on Thursday has acquitted Abdul Karim Tunda, the main accused in the 1993 serial bomb blasts case.

The court acquitted Tunda due to a lack of evidence.

Advocate Shafqat Sultani of Tunda stated that CBI failed to present any strong evidence against Abdul Karim Tunda.

Advocate Sultani told reporters, “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.”

CBI accused Tunda of being the mastermind behind the blasts on 4 trains on the 1st anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition (1992).
He added, “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.”

The charges were being framed against Tunda, and 2 other accused, identified as Irfan alias Pappu and Hamiruddin, for orchestrating the blasts in Lucknow, Kanpur, Hyderabad, Surat and Mumbai on the intervening night of December 5-6, 1993.
