A special Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act court (TADA) has set September 7 as the date to pronounce the quantum of punishments of five convicts, including Abu Salem in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.

The TADA court had on 16 June 2017 convicted six persons, Mustafa Dossa, Abu Salem, Karimullah Khan, Firoz Abdul Rashid Khan, Riyaz Siddiqui and Tahir Merchant in the Mumbai blasts case and had acquitted a seventh accused, Abdul Quayyum. Mustafa Dossa died shortly after, suffering from cardiac arrest on 28 June 2017.
