NIA admits error in probe; Declares Malegaon youths innocent

Malegaon: In a significant development for the release of the nine Muslim men who were arrested in the 2006 Malegaon blast case, National Investigation Agency (NIA) today told a special court that it does not have any objections if they are released on bail.

 

"The National Investigation Agency (NIA) in a written response to the bail applications filed by the nine accused today informed the Special MCOCA Court that it does not have any objection if the accused are released on bail", one of the defence counsels  Advocate Nehal Ansari who is in Mumbai said to ummid.com on phone.

 

"The NIA was also expected to file today the progress report on its investigations but it said it would file the complete report in later days", Advocate Ansari said.

 

"The NIA in its reply said that their investigations are still on and till now they have not found anything against these Muslim men and there is no reason left to keep them behind bar", he added.

 

The Special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime ACT (MCOCA) Court is expected to give its order after the NIA response by 04:00 today in the afternoon.

 

A series of blasts struck Malegaon on September 08 in 2006 ahead of Shab-e-Barat, a Muslim festival when thousands of people were busy offering Friday prayers at the Hamidia Masjid. Another blast occurred at nearby Mushawerat chowk few minutes later. 37 people were killed and more than 300 were injured in the blasts, most of them being children.

 

The MCOCA Court had on October 31 directed the NIA t file its response to the bail applications filed separately by the eight accused and Abrar Ahmed on November 04. However, the case was re-scheduled for today. While eight accused had filed their bail application on October 01, 2011, Abrar Ahmed filed the bail plea a few days later.

 

Local Muslims in Malegaon including the victims since the day one had maintained that the arrested Muslim men were innocent. They in fact carried one of the longest campaign in the history of the town demanding arrest of the actual perpetrators and release of the innocents.

 

The 2006 Malegaon blast case was earlier investigated by the Maharashtra ATS which had charge-sheeted the nine Muslim youth for allegedly conspiring the attacks.

 

The case was later handed over to the CBI and later to the NIA.

 

Earlier, the case took a surprising turn when Swami Aseemanand, allegedly involved in Ajmer, Mecca Masjid and Samjhuata Express blasts, confessed that Hindu extremists, some of them already wanted in the 2008 Malegaon blast case, were also behind the 2006 Malegaon blast.
