TADA charges on LeT bomb expert dropped

Top Lashkar-e-Toiba bomb expert Abdul Karim Tunda, one of the 20 terrorists India had asked Pakistan to hand over after the 26/11 Mumbai attack, was on Tuesday discharged by a Delhi court in a case lodged against him in 1994 under the stringent Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA).

Additional Sessions Judge Neena Bansal Krishna discharged 73-year-old Tunda of the alleged offences under the provisions of TADA, Explosive Substance Act, the Arms Act and under section 120 (B) (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC.

However, Tunda will have to remain in jail as there are several pending cases against him.

Special Cell of Delhi Police had filed a charge sheet against Tunda in the case in which five accused were arrested on January 17, 1994 and 150 kg explosives and six daggers were allegedly recovered from their possession.
