Mumbai: Maharashtra-based Hindu right-wing
organisation Sanatan Sanstha, accused of having a hand in the
Margao blast in Goa, today again denied its role in the
Reacting to Goa Chief Minister Digamber Kamat`s statement
earlier in the day that CBI had found some clues indicating
its involvement in the blast, Santha`s spokesperson Abhay
Vartak demanded that the government should make public
whatever evidence it had against the group`s connection.
He claimed that Kamat was making political statements to
malign the Sanstha`s image.
"I am sure that our organisation has no role in the
blast. The comments made by the chief minister should not
remain as political statement. He is trying to malign the
image of our outfit," Vartak alleged.
"If the government has any evidence or clues against us,
it should make it public so that everyone knows what is
correct and wrong," Vartak told PTI.
The blast took place on Diwali eve last year when
explosives kept in a scooter went off on a busy street in
Margao, killing two persons affiliated to the Sanstha.
"Days after the blast also such allegations were levelled
against us by Goa ministers but later they backtracked from
their statements," Vartak said.
"It`s nearly three months since the blast took place.
Till now, the investigating officials did not get any evidence
against us. This itself indicates that our group had no role
in the incident," Vartak said.
