Mumbai, January 05:

National Investigation Agency (NIA) today formally arrested key accused in 2007 Samjhauta Express blast case, Lokesh Sharma, in connection with the 2006 Malegaon bomb blasts case.

Sharma, who is already under judicial custody, was produced before a special court here, which remanded him in
NIA custody till January 19, police said.

Sharma was produced before the court which remanded him in NIA custody till January 19", said special NIA
Prosecutor Rohini Salian.

With Sharma's arrest, the number of accused held in connection with the 2006 Malegaon bomb blasts has reached 4.

The multiple bomb explosions in Malegaon, a communally sensitive powerloom town in Nashik district in northern
Maharashtra, about 200 kms from here, had occurred near a mosque on September 8, 2006 killing 37 people and injuring over 100.

After the blasts, the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) had arrested nine suspects. However, the MCOCA
court had granted bail to all of them on November 5, 2012.

The probe into the blast was handed over to CBI which endorsed the ATS findings. The case then went to NIA, which
came into existence in 2009, post the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.

In November last, NIA had told the court that the confession of Swami Aseemanand, arrested in 2007 Hyderabad
Mecca Masjid bomb blast case, pointed at the involvement of a right-wing group in the Malegaon attack.

Malegaon had seen another attack in 2008 allegedly by right wing Hindu groups. Sadhvi Pragya Singh and former Lt Col Srikant Purohit had been arrested in connection with the blast.

OPEN TRUCH

Different Laws are applicable for different people for the crime like mass murder even after rejection of mercy plea by Suppreme Court and president also.There are numbers of convicted criminals in a row for capital punishment since years but still not implimented. So It is a open truch that the accussed of mass murders in sumjhauta express blast, malegoan blast would never be covicted, never be punished. Next election some of this criminal would be nominated for MLA or MP. The govt has no any other option, only to play drama of law and juridiction for some years.

When will this people be

When will this people be punished.or will they be really punished soon. Or if you can't punish them than make them Indian prime minister or chief minister of Gujarat or at least give them some political post because this is the rule of India all criminals are having some political positions. Thanks
