BHOPAL: The report of National Investigation Agency (NIA) regarding murder case of RSS leader Sunil Joshi which is pending at home ministry is likely to be rejected with the change in Government at the Centre.Pragya Thakur named in the serial bomb blasts in Gujarat and Maharashtra on September 29, 2008 wherein three bombs exploded in the states killing eight persons and injuring 80, is also named in Sunil Joshi murder case.
Similarly, Samjhauta Express blast happened on February 18, 2007 and claimed 68 lives, the Ajmer Dargah blast occurred on October 11, 2007, outside the Dargah (shrine) of Sufi saint Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer, Rajasthan. And the Mecca Masjid bombing occurred on May 18, 2007 inside the Mecca Masjid, a mosque in Hyderabad. Many accused are either common or have links.
NIA has already sent it report of probe to ministry of home for the filing the challan. Now UPA –II has been voted out and Modi government will resume office, so there is chances that report will be rejected. May 19 was the date for the hearing which has been extended till June 3 for Pragya Thakur and for others it will be June 16. NIA is making investigation in various cases like Samjhauta Express Blast case, Ajmer Sharif Blast case, Hyderabad blast,
Defense counsel Pramod Saxena, said, “NIA report was pending at home ministry and now government has changed at the Centre. The new government will assume office and new home ministry will come. Then the report will be examined. So naturally it will take at least one or two months.
Second, NIA which has unnecessarily arrested the youth in RSS leader Sunil Joshi murder case, we hope, will get relief. During the UPA regime, many youth were brought in net of NIA in the name of investigation. So they will get relief.”
