Mecca Masjid Bomb Blast Case Verdict Today In Hyderabad

Nabakumar Sarkar alias Swami Aseemanand

Soon after the blast on May 18, 2007, five more people were killed in subsequent police firing as cops tried to control a mob.

A special anti-terror court here today acquitted right-wing activist Swami Aseemanand and four others in the 2007 Mecca Masjid blast case, ruling that the prosecution failed to prove charges against them.

The blast which took place at the Mecca Masjid which is adjacent to the historic Charminar in the Old City during Friday prayers had left 9 dead, 58 injured.

Tight security has been provided at the Nampally court.

Political party members Aseemanand, Devender Gupta, Lokesh Sharma, Bharatbhai and Rajender Chowdhary, who were charged by the NIA, were all acquitted. The investigation was originally dealt with by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) but was later handed over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).


Then after that, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) took the case in its hands from the CBI in 2011.

Ten persons allegedly belonging to right wing organisations were named as accused in the case.

In a similar case of Ajmer Dargah blast case in March 2017, a court in Rajasthan had sentenced Devendra Gupta and others for life in jail. One of the accused, an RSS functionary, Sunil Joshi, was shot when the case was being investigated. The statements of 226 witnesses were recorded and 411 documents were examined in this case.

Swami Aseemanand and Bharat Mohanlal Rateshwar are out on bail while three others have been lodged in the Central prison in Hyderabad under judicial remand.
