Ajmer blast accused moves court against case transfer

Ajmer: An accused in the 2007 Ajmer Dargah bomb blast on Monday moved the District and Session Judge Court here against transfer of the case to another court.

"This is a serious matter...Please do not transfer this case from the District and Session Judge court to any other court," the accused Chandra Sekhar Lave, who was produced before the court, stated in his plea.

The court will hear the application on November 16.

A 806-page charge sheet was filed by the Rajasthan ATS before the court of the Additional CJM here on October 22 against Lave, Lokesh Sharma, Devendra Gupta -- allegedly linked to radical Hindu group Abhinav Bharat, Sandeep Dange and Ramji Kalsangre.

While Gupta and Sharma are in Hyderabad Jail, Dange and Ramji Kalsangre remain to be traced.

Two others -- Mukesh Vasni and Harshad Bhai Solanki -- arrested recently from Gujarat in connection with the Dargah blast, which killed three persons and left 15 injured, will be produced before the CJM court here tomorrow.

The ATS detained Vasani, an anti-cow slaughter activist, from Godhra town of Gujarat, on November 3. Solanki, alias Munna alias Raj alias Daadhi Bhai, was arrested in Vadodara on November 1 and brought to Rajasthan for questioning.

Solanki, according to police, was also involved in the 2002 Best Bakery riot case in Vadodara and had been absconding since 2004.
