Malegaon Blasts: Charges Dropped Against 9 Muslim Men

All nine accused in the Malegaon 2006 blasts have been discharged by Mumbai Court. The Maharashtra anti-terrorism squad (ATS) had filed the first chargesheet against nine accused (Muslims) for the blasts that killed 37 and injured over 100 people. Later, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigated the case and filed a supplementary chargesheet on the lines of ATS. However, when NIA took over the case during the UPA government, it revealed that the attack was the handiwork of a “Hindutva fringe group”, on the basis of a confession by Swami Aseemanand, who was arrested for the 2007 Mecca Masjid blasts in Hyderabad. NIA filed a chargesheet against four suspects. The agency has, however, not been able to gather strong evidence beyond Assemanand’s confession.
