The prosecution on Wednesday demanded capital punishment for eight of the 12 convicted in the 2006 Mumbai serial train blasts, while it sought life imprisonment for the remaining four. The special MCOCA court reserved its order on sentencing for September 30.

Special Public Prosecutor Raja Thakare said to the court that the target and the timing chosen for carrying out the blasts are other aggravating circumstances.

Earlier this month, Judge Yatin Shinde convicted 12 accused while acquitting one person in the case. Serial blasts on the suburban local trains on July 11, 2006, killed at least 188 people and left over 800 injured.
