Relief plea by Zaibunnisa Kazi, other Mumbai blast convicts rejected


New Delhi: The Supreme Court Thursday granted four weeks time to surrender seven other convicts including 70-year-old Zaibunnisa Anwar Kazi.


The Supreme Court had yesterday granted the same amount of time to Sanjay Dutt - a filmstar and one of the convicts in the 1993 Mumbai blast case.


Granting relief to Abdul Razak Memon, Altaf Ali Sayed, Yusuf Mohsin Nulwalla, Zaibunnisa, Issaq Mohd Hajwane, Shariff Abdul Gafoor Parker alias Dadabhai and Kesri Adajania, a bench of Justices P. Sathasivam and B.S. Chauhan said no further time will be given to anyone to surrender on any ground.


 The Supreme Court had earlier on Tuesday rejected the pleas of three 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts convicts including Zaibunnisa Kazi that they not be forced to surrender and serve the remaining part of their respective sentences till the president decides on their clemency petitions.


Kazi, Mohammed and Abdul had moved the apex court for suspension of their sentence till their mercy petitions are decided by the president. They have cited ailments and the advanced age as reasons for relief.


Kazi, 70, had said that she was being treated for kidney cancer and her condition was so bad that she not only required constant medical attention but also needed an attendant. She said she would not be able to survive in jail.

In her plea, Kazi said that a petition under Article 72 has been filed on her behalf before the president, seeking pardon of her punishment.

Mohammed, 88, and Abdul, 76, cited their age as a ground for relief.


On Wednesday, 11 others convicted in the case and released on bail surrendered before a Mumbai court after the Supreme Court rejected their appeals.


Among those who surrendered Wednesday were Sadashiv Talwadekar, a customs official who was sentenced to eight years in jail and has already spent six years.


The other convicts who gave themselves up included Khalid Ahmed S.A. Nazir, Sajjad Alam, Abdullah I. Surti, Faki Ali Ahmed, Syed Ismail I. Kadri and Janardhan P. Gambas, who have been awarded jail terms ranging from five to seven years for aiding and abetting the pre-blast preparations.
