Malegaon: Maharashtra Minister of Textiles, Awkaf and Minorities Development Arif Naseem Khan today said that complete justice to the innocent youth and people of Malegaon would be done only when the erring officers were punished.

 

Arif Naseem Khan was on a day-long visit to Malegaon November 16 ahead of the release of the nine of the seven accused booked in the 2006 Malegaon blast case.

 

"The innocent youth of Malegaon are released today on bail. This is an indication that justice to innocent is a priority for the government. However, complete justice to these youth and people of Malegaon will be done only when the officers, who deliberately or otherwise framed the innocents in the case, are punished", Khan said while addressing a public meeting in Malegaon.

 

"These officers are either communal or sided with the communal forces and deliberately misled the investigations. It is because of them that these innocent youth had to spend so many years in jail. Investigations will be done against these officers and they will be punished so that such things are not repeated in future", he added.

 

The Maharashtra Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) after the 2006 Malegaon blast had chargesheeted nine Muslim youth in the case. However after a long legal battle and probe-after-probe by the state and federal investigating agencies, they were granted bail by the Special MCOCA Court on November 05, 2011. They were released from the jail today at around 05:30 late in the afternoon after an extensive labour of more than a week for the advocates and frequent shuttling between Mumbai and Malegaon to prepare and verify the bail documents.

 

The minister also promised that the losses these youth and their families have incurred would be compensated.

 

"Nothing can compensate the trauma and sufferings these youth and their families had to undergo during these five years. But I promise on behalf of the government that we will try every thing in hand to compensate these innocent youth", he said.

 

A series of blasts had struck Malegaon on September 08, 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 - all Muslims.

 

Local Muslims in Malegaon including the victims since the day one had maintained that the arrested Muslim men were innocent. Ironically, one of the accused who the ATS claimed in the charge-sheet as one of the planters was about 600 kms away from Malegaon at the time of incident.

 

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.

 

The nine Muslim youth had applied for the bail in January 2011 after Aseemnanad's confession. It was however rejected by the court in March.

 

After clear indications from the National Investigation Agency (NIA), which was handed over the re-investigation of the case after the ATS and CBI, that it would not oppose the bail, the nine accused again filed the bail application on October 01, 2011.

 

During the hearing on the bail application on November 05, 2011 when the NIA told the Special MCOCA Court that it was not opposed to the release of the accused, the court order them to be released on the solvency of Rs. 50,000 each.
