Raghuvanshi as ATS Chief, NO Screams Leaders in Malegaon

United States in the world and BJP in India responsible for Terrorism: Sharad Pawar

Mumbai: We have a very strong case against everyone detained in the 2008 Malegaon blast case and will not let them go unpunished,  Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) chief Raghuvanshi assured the delegation of Malegaon that met him at his Nagpada office in Mumbai today afternoon.


“We have enough evidence to prove the charges framed against the accused and are fully ready and confident to defend the Mumbai special court order dismissing the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) charges in the High Court”, Advocate Nehal Ansari quoted the ATS chief as saying. Advocate Nehal Ansari was speaking to on phone on his way back to Malegaon.


In reply to a question why the ATS failed to defend the charges in the special court, Raghuvanshi reportedly declined to comment anything stating they have not yet studied the court order because they still await a copy. He however tried to allay the apprehensions prevalent generally in the country and particularly in Malegaon.


“We are concerned about our credibility more than you and will go to every extent to salvage our repute”, Raghuvanshi reportedly said to the delegation that suggested him why the ATS doesn’t show the same firmness in dealing with the blast accused that was visible when Hemant Karkare was at the helm of the affairs.


The Malegaon delegation comprising of Advocate Nehal Ansari, Qaumi Majlis-e-Shoora president Maulana Abdul Karim Milli, corporator Moin Ashraf and others sought an appointment from the ATS chief KP Raghuvanshi to discuss the situation that arises after a local special court dismissed the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) charges against Lt. Col. Prohit, Sadhavi Pragyasingh Thakur and nine other accused this Friday.


“The court order had shocked the people in Malegaon and questions were being raised about the credibility of the ATS and it’s Chief.


Moreover, lots of things were being reported in the mainstream as well as the local media creating confusion in the minds of the people. Hence we decided to meet the ATS Chief”, Maulana Abdul Karim Milli said to about today's meeting with the ATS chief.


About the investigations into the 2006 Malegaon blast case, Raghuvanshi refrained from making any comment saying, “The investigation of the case is with the CBI and it would be unfair for him to comment anything on the matter.”


Congress leaders protest against ATS

The congress party too joined the anti ATS bandwagon when youth Congress leaders and leaders from Rajive Gandhi Brigade, Malegaon District Congress Committee and  the Congress Minority cell staged a dharna at Azad Maidan in Mumbai today morning.


They were led by Shaikh Rasheed, Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) from Malegaon and were demanding the removal of KP Raghuvanshi from the post of the ATS Chief.


Arif Nasim Khan, Minister of State for Home who later met them assured of action and defending the case in the High Court.
