Out of thirty four convicts in the 1993 Bombay bomb blast case, 25 convicts surrendered on Thursday, last day of the time limit prescribed by the Supreme Court.

While seven convicts have been given extension of four weeks by the apex court, two did not surrender.

Ranjit Kumar Singh, who was given nine years of imprisonment and Manojkumar Gupta, who was given life imprisonment by the Supreme Court last month did not surrender before the TADA court here on the last day of the stipulated time limit.

Gupta was given 14 years of imprisonment by the TADA court, which was changed to life term by the Supreme Court.

TADA court judge G.A. Sanap said that as per the procedure he would issue warrants against both the convicts on Saturday, since the court will remain closed on Friday.

Out of the 100 convicted by the TADA court, 19 who were then given the life term and 12 who were given the death sentence were never released from the jail.

While 19 convicted in the case have completed their jail term, the rest expired during the trial.

Those who had received 10 years or less of imprisonment were given bail by the apex court in 2007 and 2008. They have now returned to the jail after the court’s verdict.
