Ajmer Dargah blast case: Special NIA court likely to deliver verdict today

New Delhi : A special National Investigation Agency (NIA) court in Jaipur is expected to announce its verdict on Saturday in the Ajmer Dargah bomb blast case.

The bombing had killed three people and injured over 17 at the Dargah of Khawaja Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer in October 2007.

Swami Aseemanand along with six others- Devendra Gupta, Chandrashekhar Leve, Mukesh Vasani, Bharat Mohan Rateshwar, Lokesh Sharma and Harshad Solanki have been chargesheeted in the case.

They were accused of various charges, including hatching the conspiracy, planting and exploding bombs, murdering and spreading communal hatred.

Investigation of the bombing that took place on 11 October 2007, was transferred to the NIA in 2011 and only two FIRs were registered in 2007.

The NIA subsequently filed the chargesheet and accused Aseemanand of masterminding the blast.
