New Delhi, Jan 11 (IANS) The Supreme Court Wednesday referred to a larger bench a Pakistani national’s petition challenging his death sentence in the 1997 Karol Bagh bomb blast here in which four people were killed.
The petition by Mohd. Hussain was sent to a larger bench after Justice H.L. Dattu and Justice C.K. Prasad agreed that the trial in the case was not just but differed on the course to correct the wrong and gave a split verdict.
The bomb was planted in a private public transport bus plying on a route between Nangloi in west Delhi and Ajmeri Gate in central Delhi. The explosion took place Dec 30, 1997 at Ram Pura bus stop on Rohtak Road.
