New Delhi: The CBI today said it has not
questioned any RSS functionary during its ongoing probe into
Mecca Masjid and Ajmer blast cases.

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

"No RSS functionary has been questioned in the Mecca
Masjid or Ajmer blast case," he told reporters here.

Meanwhile, the RSS 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.

"As long as investigations go on in a professional manner
and they want cooperation, (RSS) functionaries are ready to
extend cooperation," Sangh leader Ram Madhav told reporters
here.

But at the same time he said that if investigations into
the blasts took a "political turn and if vendetta becomes the
motive, the RSS will have to take stock of the situation."

Madav termed as "baseless" reports that certain senior
RSS functionaries were involved in the incidents and were
being interrogated.

"There were certain charges about individuals and the
agencies wanted some cooperation from our functionaries. They
have extended full cooperation to the agencies," he said.

The response came following reports that two senior RSS
functionaries were interrogated by CBI for allegedly
sheltering Mecca Masjid blast accused.
