Absconding Gulberg society culprit surrenders

A convict in the 2002 Gulberg society massacre case, who had jumped the temporary bail granted to him in December last year, surrendered on Monday before a special SIT court.

Kailash Dhobi is one of 11 persons convicted for murder and other offences, and is listed as accused number 1 by the SIT in the Gulberg society case in which 69 persons, including former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri, were killed.

“Kailash Dhobi was evading arrest after jumping bail. He is named as accused number 1 and is convicted of murder and other offences. Today he surrendered before Special SIT Judge P B Desai,” special public prosecutor R C Kodekar said.
