RSS rejects reports of functionary named in Ajmer chargesheet

Last Updated: Saturday, October 23, 2010 - 15:57

New Delhi: The RSS Saturday insisted that none
of its leaders were involved in any anti-national activity and
rejected reports that the name of one of its top leaders
figure in the chargesheet filed in the Ajmer dargah blast.

"We reject the media reports that claim the name
of Indresh Kumar, a senior functionary from New Delhi,
features in the Ajmer dargah blast chargesheet," RSS
spokesperson Ram Madhav said here.

"It is far from the truth. It will be challenged in
the court," he said.

Madhav`s comments come in the wake of reports that the
chargesheet filed by the Rajasthan ATS mentions Kumar`s name.

The chargesheet says Kumar was present at a secret
meeting held in a Gujarati guest house in Jaipur on October
31, 2005, in which six other functionaries of the outfit were
also present.

Asserting that the RSS never encourages
anti-constitutional activity, Madhav said the organisation had
"extended cooperation to the investigating agencies and that
if any individual was found to be involved then due legal
recourse may be taken too".

However, to accuse senior functionaries without
verifying facts is unfair, he said, adding that the RSS was
for an impartial probe.

On Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot`s comments
that the "RSS should accept the truth which has come
out", Madhav said he would not like to react to it.

The ATS had yesterday filed a chargesheet against five
2007 Ajmer blast accused, including Devendra Gupta, allegedly
linked to radical Hindu group Abhinav Bharat, accusing them of
murder and defiling a place of worship.

The 806-page charge sheet was filed by the
Anti-Terrorist Squad in connection with the blast on
the premises of the dargah of Khawaja Moinuddin Chishti that
left three persons dead and 15 others injured.
