New Delhi: The Supreme Court today acquitted four of the sixteen accused in the 1993 Rajdhani train blasts case.
The judgment was delivered by a Bench comprising Justices FML Kalifulla and UU Lalit. Senior Advocates Sanjay Hegde, RS Sodhi, Ratnakar Dash and advocate Nitya Ramakrishnan had appeared for the accused. Advocate PK Dey had appeared for the Central Bureau of Investigation.
The case dates back to 1993, when trains including a Rajdhani Express were targeted by the accused exactly one year after the Babri Masjid demolition. In 2004, the TADA court had found the accused guilty and sentenced them to life imprisonment.
The accused had then appealed to the Supreme Court.
