One of the '93 Mumbai serial blast convicts, who had got an extension from the Supreme Court to surrender, died of a host of ailments on Sunday in Raigad.
Issac Hajwani, 61, was suffering from various ailments, including dementia. According to his lawyer, Farhana Shah, Hajwani was bed-ridden. He was supposed to surrender on May 16, she said.
The designated Tada court had earlier rejected his application for extension of time to surrender on health grounds. However, he was subsequently granted relief by the SC.
Hajwani was found guilty of criminal conspiracy and participating in a weapons training session, organised by the main accused Tiger Memon in Pakistan. He was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment by Tada court, but the Apex court later increased it to life-term.
