In all, nine Muslim men were accused and arrested by the Maharashtra anti-terrorist squad (ATS), of which one died in an accident in 2001. In the bomb blast that took place inside the Mecca Masjid in the old city of Hyderabad in 2007, eight people were killed and more than 55 injured. One of the accused Sunil Joshi, a member of RSS in Madhya Pradesh, was killed by unknown assailants during the investigation.
The septuagenarian is now on bail in the case pertaining to the blast on the Samjhauta Express train near Panipat in Haryana.
"It (acquittal) is happening in each case since the government was formed four years ago...people are losing faith in the agencies", he told news channels.
The CBI was handed over the case after initial investigations by local police. He had been granted bail in the Malegaon blast case in August 2017 by the Supreme Court. Three accused, Sandeep V Dange and Ramchandra Kalsangra, both RSS activists, and Amit Chowhan, are absconding while Tejram Parmar is on bail. CBI filed a charge sheet and later NIA took over the case from the CBI in 2011. The judgment has come as a dampener to the minority community who are now wondering in case these accused did not execute the bomb blasts at the Mecca Masjid then who carried out the deed.
Owaisi, in an earlier tweet, claimed that the NIA did not properly pursue the case, leading to the acquittal of the accused.
Aseemanand had confessed his involvement in the blast before the court but later retracted his "confession" alleging that he was coerced by the ATS (Anti-Terror Squad). Investigators alleged the Aseemanand had disappeared from his home after the probe began.
Patra raked up comments of several Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi's remarks reportedly quoted in a USA diplomatic cable in which he had said that radicalised Hindu groups posed a bigger danger to the country. He said that Kaleem who was in a Hyderabad jail was tortured in connection with the same case and hence he chose to spill the beans. During the trial, 226 witnesses were examined in the court and 411 documents were produced.
The court, Sharma said, held that the confessional statement of Aseemanand was not voluntary.
Fischer: There's some past reports that have been out there that indicate that Facebook collects about 96 data categories. Facebook is now alerting users with two notifications : one if you were affected and one if you weren't.
Apparently, Facebook monitors your activity by the kind of apps an individual uses and promotes targeted advertising through this. That's because the core function of Facebook - connecting people - is something that can be done elsewhere without having to pay.
