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.
