Wednesday May 22, 2013 9:56 PM, ummid.com & Agencies

Relieved by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) charge sheet which held four Hindu terrorists guilty of masterminding the 2006 blast inside the Qabristan mosque, the Kul Jamaati Tanzeem Tuesday demanded action against the guilty police officers and compensation for the nine Muslims who were wrongly arrested in the case.

"The NIA charge sheet has vindicated our stand. Now, all policemen, including then ATS chief KP Raghuwanshi, who were involved in arresting the nine innocent Muslim youths, should be punished", Abdul Hameed Azhari of Kul Jamaati Tanzeem said while talking to ummid.com.

"These innocent Muslim youths were arrested and kept in jail for five long years. This despite the fact that we were continuously saying that they have nothing to do with the incident and a proper probe should be conducted", he said.

He said that the Delhi government was in favour of the proper probe, but the state government was against it. "We were receiving feedbacks from our sources in the central government. It wanted a thorough and transparent probe into the incidence. However, the state government opposed to it. Hence the national investigating agency had to intervene", he said.

He said that now when the truth had come out, its responsibility of the state government to file cases against the guilty police officers who played any kind of role in misleading the nation and destroying the lives of these innocents.

He also demanded withdrawal of cases against the nine Muslim youths and a compensation of Rs.25 lakh each of them who languished in jail for about five years without any fault of theirs.

Kul Jamaati Tanzeem is an umberalla organisation of all Muslim sects in Malegaon. It was formed in 2006 after the 2006 blast to counter the claim by the investigating agencies who said the blast was out of sectarian differences among the Muslims.

32 people were killed and more than 300 other were injured when bombs exploded inside the Hamidia Masjid after Friday prayer on September 08, 2006. The Friday prayer had coincided with Shab-e-Barat, a festival when thousands throng the Qabristan for special prayers.

The ATS had arrested nine Muslim youths for masterminding the attack. The CBI later endorsed the ATS probe. The people of Malegaon however were not satisfied with the probe and piled up evidences to back their claim.

In 2011, after the role of a Hindu right-wing group in the terror strike came to the light with the arrest of Swami Aseemananda, the NIA investigations took a different course.

Based on the investigation by the National Investigation Agency (NIA), the nine accused were released on bail in November 2011.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) Wednesday filed its charge sheet against four men, accused in the 2006 Malegaon bomb blast case, before a Special MCOCA court, officials said.

The charge sheet, filed before Special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) Court Judge Prithviraj Chavan has named Lokesh Sharma, Dhan Singh, Rajendra Choudhary and Manohar Narwaria, who were arrested during the past one year, said an NIA source.
