Lucknow: All India Muslim Majlis on Saturday demanded fresh investigation into Mecca Masjid, Samjhauta Express and Malegaon blasts in the wake of statement given by Swami Aseemanand.

"Swami Aseemanand in his statement given before the court on December 18 has revealed some names which had made clear that Muslims arrested in these blasts were innocent," president of the organisation, Yusuf Habeen told reporters.

"A judicial court of inquiry should be constituted for fresh probe into these incidents," he said.

Despite revelations made by Aseemanand, innocent Muslim youths were still behind the bars and cases against them were not withdrawn, Habeen claimed.

The Muslim leader also supported the appointment of Maulana Gulam Vastanvi as the Vice-Chancellor of Darul Uloom Deoband, saying those spreading politics in the seminary should be controlled.

He alleged that politics was being done against Vastanvi and students were being used.
