A special court on Friday sentenced 38 of the 49 convicts in the 2008 Ahmedabad serial blasts case, reported news agency ANI.

The remaining 11 convicts were sentenced to life imprisonment.

The convicts had joined the proceedings through video conference from jails in Ahmedabad, Bhopal, Gaya, Bengaluru and other parts of the country.

The court had on February 8, 2022, convicted them for the serial blasts that took place on July 26, 2008, in the city claiming 56 lives and leaving over 200 persons injured.

As many as 20 bombs went off in different areas of Ahmedabad within a span of 70 minutes on July 26, 2008.

Police had said members of the militant outfit Indian Mujahideen (IM) were involved in the blasts. The IM militants had planned the blasts as a revenge for the 2002 post-Godhra riots, police said.
