Five Azamgarh residents given death sentence | India News – Times of India

AZAMGARH: Five of the 38 convicts, including mastermind Abu Bashar Shaikh, who were sentenced to death by a Gujarat special court for their role in the 2008 Ahmedabad serial blasts were residents of UP’s Azamgarh.
Residents of Muslimdominated Sarai Meer area, which was dubbed a ‘terror hub’ after the 2008 Batla House encounter and Gujarat bombings, were too shocked to speak, but some confirmed to TOI they would move a higher court. The only silver lining for Azamgarh was the acquittal of three residents — Mohammad Habib
Falahi, Mohammad Saqib and Mohammad Zakir — in the case.
Sanjarpur resident Tariq said, “We respect the verdict but we are contemplating moving the HC. ” Another resident, Mohammad Yasir, said family members of the convicts are tight-lipped. “We will move the HC against the order,” he said.
