One convicted, two let off in 2005 Delhi serial blasts case

New Delhi, Feb 16 (IANS): A trial court here on Thursday convicted one person, but acquitted two others, in the 2005 Delhi serial blasts case, which had killed over 60 people.

Additional Sessions Judge Reetesh Singh convicted Tariq Ahmed Dar on terror charges, while acquitting him of the charges of waging war against the state, conspiring, collecting arms, murder and attempt to murder.

The court sentenced Dar to jail for the period already undergone, as he had been in jail since his arrest on November 10, 2005.

The court acquitted Mohammed Hussain Fazili and Mohammed Rafiq Shah of all the charges.

In 2008, the court framed charges against Dar, accused of being the mastermind behind the serial blasts, and the other two for waging war against the state, conspiring, collecting arms, murder and attempt to murder.

The Delhi Police chargesheeted Dar, mentioning his call details that proved he was in touch with Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operatives.

The police had registered three separate FIRs in three separate incidents of blasts that took place in Sarojini Nagar, Kalkaji and Paharganj.

    A decade of jail without trials is biggest loss of life. This is the age one can build his life to become success.

    Even though courts grants bail after 10 years will society accept the terror convicts?
    Who employe the terror convicts in state or public sectors companies?

    It is complete ruin of life by selective prosecution. Shocking Over 80,000 Muslims including 59,550 undertrials in jails across India by 2014 and steadily increasing.

    Muslims, dalits and tribals make up 53% of all prisoners in India. Whereas saffron terror convicted criminals get 'clean chit' due to lack of evidence. Those who found in espionage in Madhya Pradesh get special treatment and Muslim only convicts were fake encountered.

    Did this judges have any knowledge how a person with terror tag can survive? Why there are no compensation for false conviction? Why the officers involved in fake conviction can't put behind jail for wasting precious court hours, resources and money?

    Terror has no religion. India need to act unfettered without any religious bias.
