MUMBAI: A Special Maharashtra Control of Organized Crime Act (MCOCA) court is likely to pronounce its verdict today in the 2006 train blast case in Mumbai.

In a trial that lasted for eight years, the prosecution examined 192 witnesses, including eight IPS and five IAS officers as well as 18 doctors.

According to reports, Special MCOCA Judge Yatin Shinde had concluded the trial on August 19 last year. The defence lawyers have examined 51 witnesses and one person was called as a court witness.
