Ajmer: Rajasthan DGP Harish Chandra Meena
has refuted the charge that senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar`s
name was included in the Ajmer blast chargesheet, filed by the
state Anti-Terrorist Squad, under political pressure.

"The ATS is under no pressure while investigating the
blast case," Meena told reporters here yesterday after holding
a meeting with police officers.

"All those RSS workers or others, including Indresh,
whose name cropped up during the probe, will be questioned
whenever required," he said.

"The ATS functions in an independent manner," the DGP
said rubbishing the charge that Indresh`s name was included in
the chargesheet under political pressure.

To a question, he said in view of terror activities in
the state and elsewhere in the country, the intelligence wing
of the state police would be separated from law and order.

The DGP said officials of the intelligence wing would
form a separate cadre and there would be no transfer from the
civil to the intelligence branch.

He said the crime graph in the Ajmer range had come
down compared to last year.
