The Supreme Court stayed the TADA proceedings in 2 cases against alleged
gangster Abu Salem in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case in view of Portugal court's
order terminating his extradition to India.
The court has issued notices to the Central government and the Ministry of
External Affairs and wants a response in 3 weeks.
Abu Salem in his application has said that trial, which can lead to death
penalty is against extradition promises.
