It took almost quarter of a century for a court to find Mustafa Dossa, Abu Salem, Firoz Khan, Karimullah Khan and Taher Merchant guilty of conspiracy in 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts case.

A Special Terrorism and Disruptive Activities Act (TADA) court pronounced its judgment on Friday against the gangsters.

And there is more.  Judgment is still awaited on two others in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.
