Sonipat blasts case: Abdul Karim Tunda sentenced to life imprisonment

A court in Sonepat on Tuesday awarded life imprisonment to Abdul Karim Tunda (75) in the 1996 Sonepat bomb blasts case.

While Ahmad and Khan were arrested by the police in 1998 and acquitted by a court in 2002 in the lack of evidence, Tunda could be arrested only in 2013 by Delhi police from Uttarakhand.

Sonipat SP Satender Kumar Gupta said Tunda has been convicted under Sections 307 (attempt to murder) and 120 B (conspiracy) of the IPC. He was also on the list of "most-wanted terrorists" that India had given to Pakistan after the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.

On December 28, 1996, two blasts took place in Sonipat, at a crowded bus stand and a local sweet shop, within 10 minutes of each other, resulting in the injury of 12 people.

Tunda, is accused of masterminding 40 related terror cases.

The order was passed by the court of sessions judge Sushil Garg.

While probing the case police found that Mohammad Shakeel Ahmed, Mohammad Amir Khan and Syed Abdul Karim "Tunda" were responsible for the Sonipat blasts. Tunda never admitted to his terror links and he continues to say that he was in Pakistan when the blasts occurred.

Forty-three witnesses, including those who were injured in the blasts, had also recorded their testimony during the trial, based on which Tunda was pronounced guilty.
