Mecca Masjid explosion case : all accused acquitted after 11 years of investigation

Nine people lost their lives and fifty eight were injured during the Mecca Masjid blast in Hyderabad on 18 May 2007. Almost eleven years after the explosion, which took place during the busy Friday prayers, the trial came to an end as the accused were acquitted today by the Hyderabad Court.

The Court declared that there is lack of evidence in the case to prove anyone guilty. Among the accused were also Swami Asseemanand, a former Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) member.

The case was handed over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in 2011, after investigations were carried out by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Ten persons were allegedly accused in the case, including former Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) pracharak Sunil Joshi, who was murdered while investigations were on-going.

Moreover, the proper proceedings of the Court upon the case had been affected by the missing of two accused, Sandeep V Dange and Ramchandra Kalsangra. While Hyderabad Court heard around 226 witnesses over the case and had reviewed a sum of 411 documents, it was however unable to establish the implications of the accused in the case.

Swami Asseemanand was acquitted last year in Ajmer Darjah blast, a similar case which happened in October 2007. The explosion took place just before the “Iftar” and reports claimed that three people died and seventeen injured.
