German Bakery blast: Bombay HC to pronounce verdict today


Mumbai: The Bombay High Court is likely to deliver its verdict on confirmation of death penalty awarded to Himayat Baig, the lone convict of 2010 Pune German Bakery blast case, on Thursday.

A division bench of Justices N H Patil and S B Shukre is expected to pronounce the verdict on the confirmation petition of Maharashtra government and the appeal filed by Baig challenging his conviction and the death sentence.

Baig will be produced before the High Court when it pronounces the verdict.

Baig, who the police said was a member of the terrorist outfit Indian Mujahideen, was arrested in September 2010 for involvement in the blast at German Bakery, a popular eatery in Pune's Koregaon Park area, which killed 17 persons and injured 58 including some foreign nationals.

In 2013, the sessions court in Pune convicted him and awarded him the capital punishment.
