The Supreme Court on Friday stayed the death sentence of Zakir Hussain Noor Mohammed Shaikh, a death row convict in the 1993 Mumbai serial blast case.

A bench of Chief Justice KG Balakrishnan suspended Shaikh's death penalty while admitting his plea challenging the verdict of Mumbai's anti terror court, which convicted him on charges of terrorism.

Sheikh had detonated a bomb in the Mahim fishermen's colony in Mumbai, killing three people and injuring six others.
