YUSUF Khan Kasam Khan,one of the persons recently convicted in the 1993 serial blasts case,will on Monday file a review petition in the Supreme Court,challenging the verdict against him.

The apex court had held Khan guilty on March 21 and sentenced him to five years’ rigorous imprisonment. While he was convicted under the Terrorists and Disruptive Activities (TADA) Act,he was acquitted of the general charge of conspiracy.

His lawyer Owais Ahmed Siddiqui said,“We tried to file a review petition online,but failed. Now,I will go to New Delhi and file the petition on Monday.” Siddiqui said Yusuf has spent three years and nine months in prison.

The Supreme Court also dismissed the appeal by the state challenging his acquittal from conspiracy charge. Siddiqui said there were contradictions between the two sections of the judgments.
