This just in.

Former Customs Collector AN Thapa, one of the accused in the 1993 Bombay Blasts has challenged the Constitutional validity of the Terrorists and Anti- Disruptive practices Act (TADA). This comes in at a time when the Special tribunal is deciding on the sentencing of the accused in the case. Apparently the petition is based on an opinion by Justice Markandey Katju about how TADA is unconstitutional and obsolete in today’s system.


Would keep you all updated.
