Bengaluru Court sentence 7 yrs of imprisonment to two accused of 2013 bomb blast near BJP office

Recently, a Bengaluru court recently sentenced 7 yrs of imprisonment to two accused of a 2013 bomb blast near the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) office in Malleswaram.

The bench headed by a Special Judge under the National Investigation Agency Act (NIA Act) CM Gangadhar fined them ₹50,000 and passed the order against two accused in the case, Prakash Daniel Prakash and John Nasir of the banned organisation Al-Ummah.

The case against Prakash and Nasir was registered under Section 120B, 121, 121A, 123, 307, 332, 435, 201 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), Sections 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the Explosive Substances Act, and Sections 11, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20A of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).

They were convicted under Section 6 of the Explosive Substances Act and were sentenced to imprisonment and a fine after admitting their guilt.

The Court ordered that the remaining sentence should be served apart from the sentence already spent in judicial custody.

In 2008, after the arrest of Abdul Nasir Madani, the accused in the Bengaluru serial blasts case, members of the banned militant group Al-Ummah were impatient with the then government.

For this reason, the accused targeted the BJP office and detonated an IED bomb on a bike on April 13, 2013. Six people including 12 police personnel and a young woman were injured in the incident.
