Nine persons, including prime accused Mustaq Kaniyo, were on Tuesday convicted in a post-Godhra riots case in Danilimda locality of the city, where a person was shot dead in April 2002.

Additional Sessions Judge Sonia Gokani sent Mustaq Ahmed Sheikh to 10 years rigorous imprisonment for opening fire from a private weapon and killing one person and injuring another in a clash between two communities on April 12, 2002.

The court also imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on Mustaq or an additional six months imprisonment.

Eight other accused - Mehtabraza Islam Saiyed, Rahim Ibrahim Tharda, Haroon Younis Ganyavni, Haji Mohammed Karim Chipa, Yakub Musa Patel, Mohammed Ajimkhan Pathan, Khurshid, Sagir Ahmed Ansari - were awarded one-and-a-half years imprisonment and Rs 3,000 fine (or an additional two months imprisonment).

"The eight accused were convicted on various charges including rioting, unlawful assembly, and for possessing sharp edged weapons," said Nimaben Rajput, an advocate in this case.

Meanwhile, 25 others were acquitted by the court on 'benefit of doubt'.
