Malegaon: Dr. Farogh Makhdoomi, one of the accused in the 2006 Malegaon blast case, who was on hunger strike since April 05, 2011 ended the strike on April 28 but threatened to resume if his demands are not met.

 

According to his father Iqbal Makdoomi, Dr Farogh ended the hunger strike after the jail authorities showed him a letter from the state home department which said that his demands were under the government's consideration.

 

"Believing the assurances given by the state home department, Dr Farogh ended the hunger strike. But he has threatened to resume the strike if his demands are not met within 15 days as assured by the home department", Iqbal Makhdoomi said while speaking to ummid.com.

 

Dr Farogh who has been lodged in the Arthur Road jail was observing hunger strike since April 05 demanding speedy trial of his case and a decision on his discharge application. He was shifted to Arthur Road jail after his health conditions deteriorated due to the hunger strike.

 

Meanwhile, National Investigating Agency (NIA) formally took over the re-investigation of the 2006 Malegaon blast case in its hand April 28 and presented the accused in the session court on the same day.

 

During the brief hearing, the prosecutor demanded from the session court to shift the case to the Special MCOCA court. The defence however opposed the demand stating that the Special MCOCA court is over-burdened and the trial should be started in the session court.

 

The Magistrate adjourned the decision till May 03.
