The TADA court had convicted six people, including the mastermind of the attack Mustafa Dossa and Abu Salem on June 16 this year for their role in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts. Arguments over the degree of sentences continued after the conviction in June and concluded on August 10.

A special Terrorist and Disruptive Activity (TADA) Court on Thursday sentenced gangster Abu Salem to life imprisonment for his role in the 1993 Mumbai blasts. Salem was extradited from Portugal in 2005. The treaty with Portugal does not allow for a death penalty, so he got away with life imprisonment. Tahir Merchant and Feroz Khan were given death sentence while Karimullah Khan was handed a life sentence.
