The sentence was stayed by the apex court bench of Justice B Sudarshan Reddy and Justice S Nijjar.
The court also issued notice to the Gujarat government on their petition seeking that their death sentence be quashed. The petitioners sought re-investigation of their case by the Central Bureau of Investigation.
Besides the three, the court has also stayed the life imprisonment of one convict and 10-year-imprisonment given to other convict in the same case.

"Ahmedabad: The Supreme Court last week stayed the trial of 64 Indian Mujahideen (IM) members allegedly involved in a series of terror attacks in the country. The accused had pleaded that they would not get a fair trial in Gujarat and that they were being ill-treated in jail. They sought transfer of their trial outside Gujarat. The stay, just three days before their trial was to begin, may delay and possibly derail the trial. Among the undertrials are the main accused in blasts that hit India from 2005 onwards, including those in Ahmedabad, Delhi, Jaipur and Lucknow. Among the accused are M. Peerbhoy from Pune--charged for sending e-mails about the blasts--and others from Azamgarh, including Arif Badr, alleged to have made timers for the 2008 blasts. The three major exercises in the case--investigation, arrests and the chargesheet--remain unchallenged."
Do not be suprised if there are fresh terror attacks.
