Abdul Karim Tunda gets clean chit in all four cases

A Delhi Court has ruled that there is no prima facie evidence against Abdul Karim Tunda.  

A Delhi court on Saturday discharged an alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist, Syed Abdul Karim, alias Tunda, in the last of the four cases against him, saying the special cell of the Delhi Police had failed to bring on record sufficient evidence to frame charges against him.

However, Tunda would not be able to come out of jail immediately as more cases are pending against him in Haryana, Ghaziabad, Hyderabad and Ajmer.

The court discharged Tunda’s father-in-law, Mohd Zakaria, and their alleged close aides Allauddin and Bashiruddin in the case.

The special cell had said that Tunda was the mastermind behind the blasts carried out in Delhi and other places in the country to take revenge for the demolition of the Babri Masjid in December 1992. The cell had levelled this allegation against him on the basis of disclosure statements of 20 persons, including some Pakistan nationals.
