Ajmer dargah blast co-accused gets bail
Jaipur: The Rajasthan High Court on Wednesday granted bail to the co-accused in Ajmer dargah bomb blast,
which led to the death of three persons in 2007.
A single-judge bench of the High Court granted bail to
Chandrashekher on the condition of furnishing bond and surety
of Rs 2 lakh in total.
Chandrasheker, a resident of Indore was arrested near his
home town on May 1 last year following police surveillance of
his mobile numbers which showed his close association with
other accused in the blasts.
In all, eight mobile handsets were purchased for the
blasts and some SIM cards were procured by the accused giving
fake identities, prosecution sources said.
The SIMs were found operational on the mobile handsets
used by Chandrashker for some time, and this period coincided
with the time the blasts took place.
It was alleged by the prosecution that Chandrasheker is a
perpetrator of the offence and actively aided the extremists
to bomb the dargah on October 11, 2007.
He destroyed certain mobiles used in the entire incident.
It was argued by Basant Chabba, the counsel for the
accused, that the petitioner has been chargsheeted for
shielding the offenders by destroying the evidence. However,
he argued that the accusations need yet to be proved by trial.
Two pilgrims were killed and nine others, including a
child, were injured in the terror attack when a crude bomb
went off at the sufi shrine of Khawaja Moinuddhin Chishti in
Ajmer where thousands of devout had gathered to break their
day-long Ramzan fast.
