New Delhi:

The Supreme Court has refused to grant bail to underworld don Abu Salem. A bench of judges comprising Justices NV Ramana, Surya Kant and Hima Kohli dismissed Salem’s bail plea. However, the court, after considering the facts and circumstances of the case, directed the registry to list the appeal filed against the special TADA court’s decision dated February 25, 2015, in the third week of November 2021. This decision of the Supreme Court is no less than a big setback for Abu Salem.

TADA court has given life sentence
Mumbai builder Pradeep Jain was murdered in 1995 and since then gangster Abu Salem is serving life imprisonment. In the case, the special court of TADA has sentenced him to life imprisonment. It is noteworthy that on February 25, 2015, a special TADA court had sentenced Salem to life imprisonment for the murder of the builder and his driver Mehndi Hassan. According to the police, on March 7, 1995, Jain was shot dead by assailants in front of his bungalow in Juhu for not handing over a huge property to Salem.
