NEW DELHI: After 14 years of Lajpat Nagar Central Market bomb blast in New Delhi that killed 13 people and injured 39, a Delhi court has convicted six of the 10 suspects belonging to the banned terror outfit Jammu and Kashmir Islamic Front.
The blast was triggered by an explosive laden Maruti car that went off on the evening of May 21, 1996, killing and injuring people and damaging nearby buildings.
Giving the verdict in a packed court room today, District and Sessions Judge SP Garg said, "I convict six accused in this case. Now the matter is fixed for April 13 for advancing of arguments on quantum of sentence."
The six accused are Mohammed Naushad, Mohammed Ali Bhatt, Mirza Nissar Hussain, Javed Ahmed Khan, Farooq Ahmed Khan and their woman accomplice Farida Dar.
Farooq Ahmed Khan and Farida Dar have been convicted under the provisions of Arms Act and Explosive Substances Act. Both were acquitted of other charges under the IPC.
Mirza Iftikhar, Latif Ahmed Waza, Syed Maqbool Shah, and Abdul Gani were acquitted of the charges against them for lack of sufficient evidence.
Nushad, Ali Bhatt, Nissar Hussain have been convicted under provisions dealing with criminal conspiracy and murder.
The 10 accused were arrested after police started tracing phone calls made by the suspects, who phoned to media houses to claim responsibility of the blast. All the accused turned out to be from Jammu and Kashmir.
