Bangalore: RSS on Saturday charged investigating agencies probing the Ajmer Dargah blast of subjecting a senior RSS functionary Indresh Kumar, named in the chargesheet in the case, "to physical and mental torture", despite extending full cooperation to them.

Referring to Kumar "whose name has been dragged into the chargesheet, citing a meeting", RSS spokesperson Ram Madhav alleged at a press meet here that though Kumar had fully cooperated with the Anti Terrorist Squad, Rajasthan, "they subjected him to physical and mental torture and indulged in unacceptable method of investigation".

He said RSS would take legal steps on the matter in course of time but refused to divulge further details, saying "we want the investigation to take place in a non-political atmosphere".

He flayed Congress for the recent AICC resolution blaming RSS for "sponsoring terrorism".

"We stoutly disapprove it. Let them substantiate it. We will in fact urge investigating agencies to question these Congress leaders. It is an old ploy of Congress to make us scapegoats for minority votes," he charged.

Madhav said RSS would organise rallies at block level across India in December in support of building a Ram temple at Ayodhya "following the spirit of the Ayodhya verdict".

On Kashmir issue, he said as per the instrument of succession signed in 1947, "Kashmir's integration into Indian dominion is final. We should progressively move towards no autonomy and total integration including getting back the portion occupied by Pakistan".

To another question on whether Kashmir issue would crop up during US President Barack Obama’s current visit, he said "it is a bilateral issue".

"India has to sort it out with Pakistan. There is no scope for any third party (foreign) interference".
