Trashing the purported interview of Aseemanand, an accused in Samjhauta Express and other blast cases, that RSS had "sanctioned" the terror acts, BJP on Friday dismissed it as an attempt by the government to divert public attention from important issues before Lok Sabha polls.
The probe into the Hyderabad terror attack gathered further momentum Sunday with police picking up some suspects and National Investigation Agency (NIA) teams fanning to various places to gather clues.
The Andhra Pradesh government
on Tuesday accepted the report of Justice V Bhaskar Rao Committee
that probed into the police firing and related incidents in
the aftermath of the bomb blast at Mecca Masjid here in 2007.
After taking over the probe into
the suspected role of right-wing groups in terror acts across the country, a team of the NIA visited the Mecca Masjid where a bomb blast in 2007 had claimed nine lives.
The CBI on Friday opposed the bail
pleas of two accused in the 2007 Mecca Masjid bomb blasts
saying that the case was "sensitive" and there was a
possibility of "communal clashes" if the duo were released.
Senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar,
whose name has come up in some media reports over alleged
links with Mecca Masjid blasts suspects, Saturday said this
"false propaganda" against him was part
of a "deep political conspiracy".
A local court on Thursday postponed to
July 20 the hearing on CBI`s plea seeking to conduct polygraph
and narco-analysis tests on the two accused arrested in
connection with the 2007 Mecca Masjid bomb blast case.
