Himayat Baig convicted of 2010 Pune blast; to appeal in HC

Monday April 15, 2013 02:46:47 PM, IANS

Pune: A Pune court Monday held Himayat Baig, a prime accused in the German Bakery blast here, guilty for his role in the terror attack which left 17 people dead and 64 injured, officials said Monday.

Pune Sessions Court Special Judge M.P. Dhote delivered the verdict before a packed courtroom Monday morning.

Special Judge Dhote will pronounce the quantum of sentence for Baig April 18.

The blast occurred Feb 13, 2010, at the German Bakery in Pune's upmarket Koregaon Park. The bakery was a popular haunt of youngsters and foreign tourists.

In September 2010, about seven months after the blast, Baig was nabbed from Udgir, Latur district of Maharashtra, by the state's Anti-Terrorism Squad.

Special Public Prosecutor Raja Thakre told media persons after the ruling that the court had found Baig guilty on various counts under Indian Penal Code Sections 302, 307, 120b, 153A, 325, 326, and others, pertaining to murder, conspiracy, destroying property and other serious crimes.

Baig's lawyer A. Rahman said that though they respected the verdict delivered Monday, they would appeal against it in the Bombay High Court.
