Mumbai: Special Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act court on Monday convicted extradited gangster Abu Salem in the murder case of a Mumbai-based builder Pradeep Jain.
This is the first judgement in a case involving Salem in India. Arguments for the quantum of punishment will take place on Tuesday.
On March 7, 1995 Pradeep Jain was shot dead by assailants outside his Juhu bungalow.
Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said, "Underworld don Abu Salem found guilty for murder of Pradeep Jain. Today Abu Salem has been declared terrorist for committing various terrorist attacks. It's a historical judgment."
