SC Dismissed A Petition Filed By Muhammad Moin Faridulla

New Delhi: The Supreme Court has dismissed a petition filed by Muhammad Moin Faridulla, a convict in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case, seeking leniency under the Juvenile Justice Act, claiming he was juvenile at the time of the commission of the offence.

The three-judge bench of Justices DY Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and Indira Banerjee declined Faridulla’s plea saying that the judgment which has attained finality cannot be challenged with a petition filed under Article 32 of the Constitution.

The bench said that the relief sought in the plea would essentially require the court, in the exercise of its jurisdiction under Article 32, to overturn the sentence imposed on him in the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA) case by a designated court, when the conviction and sentence have been upheld by this court.
