Mecca Masjid Blast case: Asaduddin Owaisi condemns NIA over acquittals

Mecca Masjid Blast case: Asaduddin Owaisi condemns NIA over acquittals

Shortly afterwards, the judge who ordered the acquittals tendered his resignation, citing "personal reasons".

I do not complaint against the courts as it is for the prosecution to prove, because this is not a small crime.

VHP's working International President Alok Kumar said the Congress government had hatched a conspiracy to save real culprits and implicate innocent Hindus in the name of Hindu terrorism.

The five accused who were acquitted today are Nabakumar Sarkar alias Swami Aseemanand, Devender Gupta, Lokesh Sharma, Bharat Mohanlal Rateshwar alias Bharat Bhai and Rajendra Choudhary - all members of the right-wing group Abhinav Bharat. It is not clear why the judge submitted his resignation. Ravinder Reddy is the fourth metropolitan sessions judge at Nampally court and is incharge of the NIA court. The officer added that Reddy had probably made a decision to resign sometimes back itself.

Gupta, acquitted in this case, was sentenced to life in jail past year for the Ajmer Sharif dargah blast. The case drags on, and the court seldom gives bail to the accused considering the sensitivity of the situation.

Nine persons were killed and 58 injured when an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blast rocked the historic Macca Masjid on May 18, 2007, when around 10,000 people were offering the Friday (Juma) prayers. The explosion had taken place in an area of the mosque where devotees performed ablutions. Two live IEDs were also recovered by police and defused.

The media was not allowed in the courtroom while the judgement was being pronounced today. The probe agency has often been accused of being lenient with Hindu-right wing terror outfits after the NDA government came to power in 2014.

The NIA is still probing the case against the two absconding remaining accused.

She was a pioneering guitarist who performed gospel music and was known to some as "the godmother of rock "n" roll". Later during his acceptance speech, Illsley credited Knopfler with writing the band's timeless songs.

While, Joshi, an RSS activist from Madhya Pradesh, was murdered in December 2007. A bomb erupts, and the investigating authorities arrest a few suspects.

The case was handed over to the CBI within a month, and then the NIA in 2011.

A total of 226 witnesses were examined during the trial and as many as 411 documents were exhibited.

It is the government which has to decide whether the NIA should appeal in the higher court or not, he added.

Buoyed by the verdict, the BJP claimed that it had "exposed" the Congress's "appeasement politics" while the latter raised questions about the functioning of the NIA.

While the verdict will renew the "saffron terror" debate ahead of Assembly elections in several states, for now, no one is responsible for the blasts that led to the death of 14 people.

Asked by a reporter to comment on the verdict, Rahul Gandhi ignored the poser and told his driver to move ahead.
