Mumbai: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is set to arrest the terrorist belonging to the Hindu terrorist organisation who is currently in Delhi Police custody for the 2007 Samjhauta Express blasts in the 2006 Malegaon blast case. 


The suspect, Rajender Chaudhary, will be produced before a special court here in January 3, news agency PTI reported Friday.

The Special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) Court on Friday issued a production warrant for Chaudhary in connection with the Malegoan blasts, which according to NIA, were the handiwork of right wing groups.

“The court has issued a production warrant and he will be brought to the court on January 3,” PTI quoted Special Public Prosecutor Rohini Salian as saying.

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.

The alleged role of Chaudhary in the terror attack came out through statements of some of the terrorists allegedly belonging to the Hindu terrorist organisations who are in custody of NIA in different cases, sources in the National Investigation Agency said.

More arrests will follow once Chaudhary is taken into custody and interrogated, they said.

After the explosions, Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) had arrested nine suspects - Salman Farsi, Shabbir Ahmed, Noorulhuda, Rais Ahmed, Mohammed Ali, Asif Khan, Javed Sheikh, Farogue Ansari and Abrar Ahmed.

 

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.

 

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.

 

The nine Muslim youths were in November 2011 released on bail.
