New Delhi: Amid the reports that the MCOCA charges will be dropped against all accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast case, the Congress on Friday alleged that Malegaon blast accused were being set free because they have links with the BJP-led central government.
“The central government wanted to save Malegaon (blast case) accused as they have connections with them,” senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh told the media here.
“Even Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) wants to save the people involved in terror activities.”
Reports have also surfaced that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) had given a clean chit to Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, the key accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast case.
Six people were killed when a powerful bomb fitted in a motor cycle, allegedly owned by Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, exploded in a crowdy market in Malegaon during the Holy Month of Ramadan on September 29, 2008.
The NIA is to submit its charges in a Mumbai court later on Friday.
