Salem was extradited from Portugal in 2005. Along with being named in the Mumbai blasts case, he is also accused in a number of other murder and extortion cases. The others accused in the blast case include Karimullah Khan, Feroze Abdul Rashid, Tahir Merchant and Mustafa Dossa.

In February 2015, Salem was sentenced to life imprisonment by a special court in the 1995 murder of Mumbai builder Pradeep Jain.

Thirteen blasts had ripped through Mumbai on 12 March, 1993, killing more than 257 people and injuring around 713 in the incident.
