Hyderabad Mecca Masjid blast: Did NIA or CBI mess up the probe?

Hyderabad Mecca Masjid blast: Did NIA or CBI mess up the probe?

Initially, Bangladesh-based () was suspected for the blasts and local youth were picked up and later after the CBI took over, it arrested the accused belonging to and Hindu Vichar Manch. NIA had taken the names of RSS and in the chargesheets. The Congress had then demanded that all cases being handled by the NIA be monitored by the Supreme Court to ensure that there was "no pressure" on the agency. The most notable accused in the case was Swami Aseemanand.

The former Rajya Sabha MP was referring to the Hadiya case, where a Hindu woman's marriage to a Muslim man is under the NIA scanner for possible terror angle. The Mecca Masjid case is expected to go the same way as the others - the Ajmer Dargah blast, the Samjhauta Express attack (both 2007), and the Malegaon blast case of 2008 in which members of so-called extreme right-wing Hindu outfits were charged. Swamy Aseemanand, a resident of Gujarat and head of Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram, was earlier acquitted in the Ajmer Dargah blast case and is now on bail in Samjhauta Express blast case of 2014.

A resident of Gujarat and head of the Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram, Aseemanand was formerly associated with the RSS.

In March a year ago, the NIA had absolved him in the Ajmer blast case. Armed personnel from various wings of the State police will be deployed and roads leading to the court will be barricaded. We should, instead, gainfully expend our energies to press for the Justice Malimath Committee Report (2003) on reforms in the criminal justice system and the Supreme Court directives in the Prakash Singh versus Union of India case (2006) for police reforms to be implemented.

Sixth, and finally, the argument that since the chargesheet was prepared under Congress-led UP and hence the BJP government could not be accused of trying to influence prosecution does not wash.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) said on Monday that it would examine the judgment in the 2007 Mecca Masjid blast case and decide the future course of action.

"For its appeasement politics, the Congress targeted and defamed Hindus and the country for merely some votes. That conspiracy has been exposed", said Sambit Patra, BJP spokesperson. "The saffron terror script was written by Congress and I am a living example of that", she said. "It is our clear belief that terror can not be linked to any religion or any community or caste", said P.L. Punia, Congress spokesperson.
