New Delhi: The government on Friday said it was aware that elements in certain right wing Hindu outfits were allegedly involved in terror activities in the country.

"We are aware about that," Union Home Secretary Gopal K Pillai told reporters when asked about reports that elements in certain right wing Hindu outfits were allegedly involved in some bomb explosions in the country.

Pillai, however, did not specify which outfits were involved in such acts.

The CBI, which is probing into the Mecca Masjid and Ajmer blast cases, has recently said that the agency did not question any RSS functionary during the probe.

CBI Director Ashwani Kumar had said that the reports about the agency questioning RSS leaders in connection with the terror attacks in Mecca Masjid and Ajmer were not correct.

The RSS also had said its functionaries will "cooperate" with agencies probing alleged links of Hindu groups in certain bomb blast cases, but termed as "baseless" suggestions that some of its members were involved in the crimes.
