Verdict in 2007 Hyderabad bombings on August 27


Hyderabad, Aug 7: A local Hyderabad court on Tuesday said the judgement in the 2007 Hyderabad twin bomb blasts case will be pronounced on August 27. 

“After completion of arguments and counter-arguments today, Sessions Judge Srinivas Rao fixed August 27 for judgement,” Special Public Prosecutor C Seshu Reddy told media.

Eleven years ago on 25 August, at least 42 people were killed in the explosions which took place at Gokul Chat Bhandar and Lumbini Park.

The Counter Intelligence Cell of Telangana police, which was investigating the case had filed three separate charge sheets.

In June, the trial against the four accused – Anique Shafiq Syed, Mohammed Sadiq, Akbar Ismail Choudhary and Ansar Ahmed Badhsah Sheikh – was shifted to a courtroom inside Cherlapalli Central Prison in Hyderabad from a courtroom at Nampally court complex.

The second Metropolitan Sessions Judge’s court framed the charges against the “IM” operatives in August 2013 under Section 302 (murder) and other relevant provisions of the IPC and Explosive Substances Act.

The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad in October 2008 arrested four persons.

Following the arrest, they were taken into custody by Gujarat Police. Presently, the all accused are lodged in Cherlapalli Central Prison.
