By Chennabasaveshwar

A special Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA) Court on Tuesday awarded life imprisonment to terror convict Riyaz Siddiqui in Pradeep Jain murder case. Trial of Siddiqui was separated in the Jain murder case as he turned hostile in the court.

Last week Siddiqui had been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment in connection with the 1993 Mumbai blasts case.

Gangster Abu Salem is another convict in the Jain murder case.

Mumbai-based builder Pradeep Jain was shot dead by assailants outside his Juhu bungalow in March, 1995. His brother Sunil, an eyewitness, had suffered injuries in the attack. The police had alleged that Jain had refused to give up a huge property to Abu Salem.

Salem, also a convict in the 1993 serial blasts case, had been pronounced guilty in the builder murder case and awarded life sentence two years ago.
