NIA to arrest Samjautha accused in 2006 Malegaon blast case

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  »

Mumbai: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Saturday made its first arrest in connection with the 2006 Malegaon bombing after the role of right-wing groups came to the fore with the nabbing of Swami Aseemanand in 2011, news agency PTI reported.

The NIA arrested Mohan, the terrorist alleged to be part of the criminal conspiracy and touted as planter of explosives in the powerloom town of Malegaon on September 8, 2006 which left 37 people dead.

He was arrested from Hatod area of Indore district in Madhya Pradesh and was being taken to Mumbai on a transit remand where he would produced before the court, PTI quoted officials as saying.

Mohan’s role came out before the NIA during the interrogation of Rajesh Chowdhry, an alleged bomber of Samjhauta train blast, who had claimed to be also a part of alleged conspiracy involved in bombing at Malegaon, they said.


His arrest is the first one by the NIA in connection with the Malegaon blasts.
 

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. The nine Muslim youths were in November 2011 released on bail after remaining in jail for more than five years.

 

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

Malegaon had seen another terror attack in 2008 allegedly by right-wing Hindu groups. Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur and former Lt. Col. Srikanth Purohit were arrested in connection with the incident.
