Mumbai, Oct 17 (UNI) The Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA) Court will not hand over copies of the judgement to the 1993 blast convicts from tomorrow, according to court sources.

The court was scheduled to hand over copies of the judgement from October 18 but only 70 per cent of them are ready and the remaining will get ready in the next few days, sources said.

Following this, Bollywood actor Sunjay Dutt and 23 other convicts, who were on interim bail, got a relief as they have to surrender before the authorities after getting the copy of the judgement.

The court was scheduled to hand over the copy of judgement to Dutt on October 20. However, the other convicts were given the date of October 18.

Sources said due to the delay, the convicts who were earlier summoned tomorrow, have been directed to appear in court on October 20. However, Dutt's date is not yet rescheduled.

Dutt and 23 other convicts were granted bail by the Supreme Court on the condition that they will have to surrender before the TADA Court once they get the copy of the judgement.

It may be recalled that designated TADA Judge P D Kode had convicted 100 accused for their role in the Mumbai serial blasts case which rocked the metropolis on March 12, 1993. 257 persons were killed, 715 others injured and property worth crores of rupees was damaged in the blasts.
