On May 13, 2008, more than 80 people were killed and more than 183 were injured in the Jaipur bomb blasts. Eight blasts took place in the city that day, sending a wave of shock across the country.

The CBI had accused Tunda of being the mastermind of the four train blasts on the first anniversary of the demolition of the Babri structure in 1992.

Abdul Karim Tunda was acquitted saying that the prosecution could not present sufficient evidence to prove the charges.

At the same time, the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA) court of Judge Mahavir Prasad Gupta sentenced two other accused (Irfan and Hameeduddin) to life imprisonment in this case.

Tunda (81), a close associate of India's most wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim, is accused of carrying out blasts in five trains in different cities in December 1993, on the first anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition.
