Hindu Outfit under scanner for Goa blast, five activists nabbed

Panaji: Sanatan Sanstha’s link to Margao blast conspiracy is getting thicker with all five accused arrested in the case having allegiance to the Hindu right wing organisation operating from Goa, police said.


The latest accused arrested, Dhananjay Ashtekar(20), an Electronic Engineering student from Khed in Ratnagiri, is also associated with the Sanatan Sanstha.


He was arrested on Wednesday by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the State police.


“He is related to the Sanstha and has made that clear during his interrogation,” Superintendent of Police and spokesperson for Goa police department Atmaram Deshpande said on Thursday.


Ashtekar, the fifth Sanstha activist found to be linked with the blast on October 16, is a student of an engineering college at Ichalkaranji, a town in Maharashtra.


Earlier police had established that the two accused, Malgonda Patil and Yogesh Naik who died in the Margao blast and the two arrested persons, Vinayak Patil and Vinay Talekar, had links with the Sanstha, which operates through its Ashram at Ramnathi.


The blast had taken place at 9.30 pm on October 16 in the night when explosives kept in a scooter went off on a busy street in Margao, 30 kms from Panaji. Police claimed the outfit is allegedly linked to Malegaon blast accused and right-wing activist Sadhvi Pragya Singh.


The police in October  had arrested Vinay Talekar, 30 and Vinayak Patil, 27  - originally from Karwar and Belgaum in Karnataka respectively - Superintendent of Police (criminal investigation department) Atmaram Deshpande had told the reporters. "With their arrest the pace of investigation into the Goa blast will definitely quicken. At this stage we are not ruling out further arrests," he said.


"There is a very high possibility that a mastermind is involved behind the blast. A mastermind will not come out in the open like this," Deshpande said, when asked about the role Malgonda Patil, one of the two Sanatan Sanstha members who died while handling the improvised explosive device (IED) on in Margao, 35 km from here.


Interestingly, Sanathan Sanstha ever since the blast occurred on October 16 and it came under scanner is continuously denying it has any role in the Goa Blast. However, as the investigations are going deeper new revelations are coming our every day.
