Finally, NIA gets court nod to compare Samjhauta, Malegaon blasts evidence

Wednesday September 28, 2011 07:47:18 PM, IANS

Panchkula (Haryana): A Haryana court Wednesday allowed the National Investigating Agency (NIA) to compare evidence of the Samjhauta train blasts with those in Malegaon, Hyderabad and Ajmer.

Special Judge Subhash Mehta allowed the investigating agency to carry the evidence and other proof, found in the Samjhauta blast of Feb 18, 2007 near Panipat town in Haryana, to be taken to Hyderabad for examination by forensic experts.

The NIA, through its counsel, had sought the court's permission to compare evidence of the train blast with other blasts. The examination will be done at the Central Forensic Sciences Laboratory in Hyderabad.

Imposing conditions on the NIA, the court said that the evidence should be taken in safe custody and it (court) should be informed in advance when the CFSL carries out the examination.

The NIA is looking for leads to any links between these blasts.

Hindu activist Swami Assemanand and four others are the main accused in the Samjhauta blast case in which 68 people, many of them from Pakistan, were killed in the blasts in the moving train near Panipat. The blasts happened on the Delhi-Attari link train that connects to the peace train between India and Pakistan.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had arrested Aseemanand, a member of the right-wing Hindu group Abhinav Bharat, Nov 19 last year from Haridwar (in Uttarakhand) for his alleged role in the 2007 Mecca Masjid blast in Hyderabad in which 14 people were killed.
