1993 Mumbai blasts convict Zaibunissa surrenders
Mumbai: Zaibunissa Kazi, a convict in the March 1993 serial blasts case, surrendered in Mumbai court Monday afternoon, three days after a judge issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against her. The 75-year-old Kazi arrived on a wheelchair accompanied by her daughter and surrendered in the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (TADA) special court.
Kazi's surrender came after the special court issued non-bailable warrants against her and co-accused Sharif Dada Parkar, who is over 80 years old, after they failed to appear before it within the deadline set by the Supreme Court. Her lawyer said that she required to undergo certain medical tests and needed time till May 20 before she could surrender, but the court declined the plea.
Soon after her arrival, Kazi was mobbed by media-persons and she broke down, pleading "mercy and forgiveness" from the government.
