Mecca Masjid blasts: All accused, including Aseemanand, acquitted

Mecca Masjid blasts: All accused, including Aseemanand, acquitted

"He has sent the resignation letter to MSJ (Metropolitan Sessions Judge).he has cited personal grounds and it has nothing to do with today's verdict in the Mecca Masjid blast case", the senior judicial officer told news agency PTI.

A massive blast had ripped through the Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad on May 18, 2007, during Friday prayers, killing nine people and wounding 58. The NIA took over the case from the CBI in 2011.

10 people were named as accused in the case. Two others, Sandeep Dange, former RSS pracharak and Ramchandra Kalsangra, an RSS activist from Madhya Pradesh, are yet to be arrested. The NIA examined over 200 witnesses while 411 documents were exhibited. They didn't even challenge the court's bail order to two accused - Devender Gupta and Lokesh Sharma - in the Mecca Masjid Dargah case earlier. Already NIA is being referred to on social media as the "National Institute of Acquittals". Another accused Sunil Joshi was murdered during the probe. On the other hand, Congress said the court was right at the time of 2G Verdict but labeling it wrong today. Kaleem happened to relate his story to Aseemanand and soon after, an apparently repentant Swami confessed to his role in the terror attack.

Three years after his alleged involvement in the series of three explosions, the CBI arrested Aseemanand on November 20, 2010 from an ashram in Haridwar, Uttarakhand.

The party also alleged that the investigative agencies were being used as a rubber stamp by the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government at the Centre.

Ghulam Nabi Azad, Congress spokesman: "NIA functions under BJP government, faith in agencies is lost". Victims of Macca Masjid blast have been denied justice.

At a political level, the verdict also throws the bogey of "Hindu terror" out of the window.

But a review of the Ajmer case judgment showed that the trial judge found several procedural loopholes in Aseemanand's statement recorded before the magistrate. The BJP said it had exposed the Congress' appeasement politics and proved that there is "no such thing as saffron terror".

Punia's reaction came soon after the BJP accused the Congress of "defaming" the Hindu religion by coining the term "saffron terror" and demanded apologies from Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi.
