NEW DELHI, Oct 10 (Agencies): The Sonipat court on Tuesday pronounced life sentence for 1996 Sonipat bomb blasts convict Abdul Karim Tunda.

The court asked Tunda to pay Rs 50,000 each in under section 307, 120 B and section 3 of the Explosive Substances Act.

The court on Monday pronounced 75-year-old Tunda as guilty in the blast case.

The court of additional district and sessions judge Sushil Kumar Garg pronounced the quantum of punishment.

While recording his statement in court in September this year, Tunda, who is currently lodged in a jail in Sonipat, had claimed that he was in Pakistan at the time of the blasts.

At least 15 persons were injured in twin blasts in Sonipat in 1996 -- one near a cinema hall and another near a sweets shop.

The lawyer said that 43 witnesses, including those who were injured in the blasts, recorded their testimony during the trial.

Tunda was arrested from the Indo-Nepal border at Banbasa on August 16, 2013. He was suspected to be involved in several blasts cases across the country, some of which are still pending.
