The verdict was pronounced by Justice T. Srinivas Rao in Nampally court complex. Two of the five accused in the twin bombing case of 2007 in Hyderabad had been found guilty. The punishment will be announced on Monday.
On 25 August 2007, two bombs exploded almost simultaneously in Hyderabad. The first bomb exploded in Lumbini Amusement Park before a second explosion five minutes later in Gokul Chat Bhandar, a popular restaurant in the city. At least 42 people were reported to have died in the two bombings. A day after the blasts, police discovered 19 unexploded bombs, most fitted with timers and placed in plastic bags—across Hyderabad at bus stops, by cinemas, road junctions and pedestrian bridges and near a public water fountain.
Seven people were arrested and five were accused in that case and the court found two of them guilty today. They were convicted under the section 302 (murder) and other relevant provisions of the IPC and sections of the Explosive Substances Act.
