Salem’s fate to be decided tomorrow

Written By Unknown on Selasa, 24 Februari 2015 | 22.23

MUMBAI: A special TADA court will pronounce on Wednesday the quantum of sentence for extradited gangster Abu Salem in the 1995 murder of builder Pradeep Jain. This comes a week after the prosecution and defence advanced arguments regarding the extradition treaty under which Salem cannot be awarded the death sentence.

Even as the prosecution has sought a life sentence lasting till the end of Salem's natural life, the treaty stipulates that he can be given only a total of 25 years' imprisonment under all nine cases in which he was charged.

The court will also pronounce the sentence against co-convict Mehendi Hasan for whom special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam sought the death sentence. Defence advocate Sudeep Pasbola iterated that the driver, who helped the sharpshooters with arms, was only a fringe player. He argued that on basis of parity, he could not be given the death sentence as the sharpshooters convicted earlier were only awarded life imprisonment. He also said that Salem's sentence should be set off against the time spent in jail.

A probation officer has submitted a confidential report on V K Jhamb (86) who was found guilty on an extortion charge. He has sought relief from a jail term on health grounds.
