Mumbai, Dec 6: All the 17 convicts, who were granted bail by the Supreme Court along with Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt in the 93 Mumbai serial blasts case, have been released from jail till today.
However, as per the apex court's directives, all the released convicts are required to visit the CBI Office once in a month and are also not allowed to leave the country without the permission of the designated court.
Fifteen of the 17 convicts, including Dutt, were released last month. While two, Abdul Aziz Shaikh and dissmissed police constable Ramesh Mali, were released from the Nashik jail on Dec6 as their bail papers were delayed due to some technical reasons.
Today, Shaikh and Mali came to the CBI office to register their presence.
It may be recalled that along with Dutt, 28 convicts had moved their bail plea but the Supreme Court granted bail only to 17.
The plea of 11 convicts, including three family members of absconding accused Tiger Memon, was adjourned by the court on the grounds that they are facing life imprisonment and were involved in the conspiracy of the serial blasts that rocked the metropolis on March 12, 1993 killing 257 people, injuring 725 and damaging property worth crores of rupees.
