The Supreme Court on Monday stayed the death sentence of Adam Bhai Sulemanbhai Ajmeri and Abdul Kayum alias Muftisaab Mohmedbhai, who were convicted by a Special POTA Court in Gujarat for causing the death of 37 people at the Akshardham temple in Gujarat in 2002. The judgment was affirmed by the Gujarat High Court.

A Bench, consisting of Justices B. Sudershan Reddy and S.S. Nijjar, while staying the sentence, issued notice to Gujarat on appeals by the two convicts challenging the High Court judgment.
