Four Muslim men sentenced to death in Jaipur bomb blast case acquitted by Rajasthan court

Jaipur,March 29 (KMS): In a significant development, Rajasthan High Court has acquitted four Muslim men, Sarvar Aazmi, Mohammad Saif, Saifur Rahman, and Salman, who were previously convicted and sentenced to death in connection with the Jaipur bomb blast case.

The court’s verdict came on 29 March, Wednesday, and it has also ordered a probe against the police while questioning the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) for failing to provide credible evidence.

The four men were sentenced to death on 20 December 2019 by a special court. However, the recent acquittal has come as a relief to them and their families who have been claiming that the Muslim men were framed in the case.

The Association for Protection of Civil Rights (APCR) played a significant role in fighting this case, and it was their legal team that represented the accused in court.

Earlier, Farooq Paker, amicus curiae for all four Muslim men said, “This is the first case where death penalty has been circumstantial evidence. There was no direct evidence all four were falsely implicated. There were nearly 1300 witnesses and I cross examined all of them but not single one could identify any of these four men planting a bomb on the bicycle. Also bicycle purchase bill produced in the court is different than the frame number of bicycle used in the bomb blast.”
