HYDERABAD: High Court on Monday admitted the appeal filed by the five convicts of the Dilsukhnagar bomb blast and would hear it along with the reference proceedings of the Special National Investigation Agency (NIA) Court for confirmation of the death sentence awarded to the convicts.

While admitting the matter, the bench comprising Justice C V Nagarjuna Reddy and Justice M S K Jaiswal said that it will hear the appeal along with the case records and the file referred by the NIA Court for confirmation of the sentence.

On December 13 last year, the NIA Court while terming the crime as ‘rarest of rare’ convicted the five operatives of Indian Mujahideen for their involvement in two consecutive bomb explosions that took place at Dilsukhnagar area in 2013.

On Dec 19, the special court imposed death sentence on the convicts - Yasin Bhatkal, Asadullah Akhtar, Zia Ur Rahman, Mohammed Tahseen and Aizaz Saeed Shaik - who were found guilty of carrying out the blasts.

Aggrieved by the order of the lower court, they failed to prove HC contending that they were convicted through prosecution that they were members of Indian Mujahideen.

NIA Judge T Srinivasa Rao referred the matter to the High Court for confirmation of the death sentence.
