Mumbai: The Bombay High Court (HC) Monday directed the Maharashtra government to give explanations as to why the investigations of September 2006 Malegaon blast were handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).


The court's order came in view of an appeal filed by three accused in the case.


Malegaon, the textile town in North Maharashtra was attacked by terrorists in September 2006. The blasts that had taken place outside and near a mosque had killed more than 30 people and injured over 300, all of them Muslims. The investigating agencies alleged the involvement of the Muslim youths belonging to SIMI into the incident.


Finally, they arrested nine Muslim youths who are lingering in the jail since last three years.


Following the persistent demand from the town that by and large believed the arrested youths are innocent, the government handed the investigations to CBI.


The CBI, however, despite being in-charge of the investigations since last December 2006 has not completed its investigations so far. Consequently, three of the nine accused filed a petition in the High Court seeking speedy completion of the CBI probe.


Interestingly, the state government had handed the investigations to the CBI after the Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) filed its chargesheet into the case.


The High Court today also said that the cause for the transfer of investigations after the charge sheet was filed needs to be examined.


The petitioners has also sought to investigate into the manner in which the inquiry was conducted in the case.


The High Court has asked the state government to file an affidavit in this regard within two weeks.


Meanwhile, local MLA Mufti Mohd Ismael while speaking to said, "Justice delayed is justice denied. According to the precedent, the CBI should have completed its investigations in one year's time. Here, more than three years have passed and we are yet to see any progress while the accused are lingering in jail."
