In a historic judgement, the co-founder of the Indian Mujahideen and four others have been sentenced to Death for the twin blast in Dilsukhnagar, Hyderabad in 2013, which killed over 21 people and injured over 130 people in a busy market area. The terrorists had detonated Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) in two places simultaneously in the market area which caused extensive damage.

The first IED had blew up around 7 p.m. near 107 bus stop and another bomb went off near A1 Mirchi centre, which was in a short distance from the bus stop.

For the first time the top leaders of the Indian Mujahideen has been found guilty after the ban of the organization in 2010. The National Investigation Agency had filed case in Hyderabad court against Yasin Bhatkal, Asadullah Akthar alias Haddi, Zia Ur Rahman alias Waqas, Mohammed Tahseen Akthar alias Hassan, Ahmed Siddibappa Zarrar alias Yasin Bhatkal and Ajaz Shaikh in the twin blasts. just few days back, the special court had given judgement convicting all the accused and reserved the punishment for today.

It is a welcome move said the people and families of those who were injured and killed in the blast three years back. They said that such people should be hanged to death and no sympathy should be shown for taking the lives of the innocents.

However, the prime suspect Riyaz Bhatkal who is absconding since many days is also convicted and police said they have launched the hunt and will be caught at the earliest.
