Pune: Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan
has said the government would challenge in Supreme Court, the
special court`s decision of dropping the stringent Maharashtra
Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) invoked against 11
accused in 2008 Malegaon bomb blast case.

"We would initiate MCOCA against those involved in
terrorist activities irrespective of caste and religion of the
accused," Chavan said addressing a party rally here last
night.

He said the government would not remain a mute spectator
to the menace of disruptive tactics of terrorist elements.

Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) chief K P Raghuvanshi had
earlier said the ATS, which has obtained a four week stay,
would challenge the special court`s order in higher court.

A special court in Mumbai on Friday dropped provisions
of the stringent MCOCA invoked against Sadhvi Pragya Singh, Lt
Col Prasad S P Purohit and nine other accused in September 29,
2008 Malegaon bomb blast case saying none of them is part of
an organised crime syndicate.
