Ajmer blast: Government going soft on Saffron accused, says Prashant Bhushan

By NewsGram Staff Writer

Swaraj Abhiyan co-founder Prashant Bhushan tweeted to express his disapproval of the government’s attitude and intention towards the cases of terror, where the accused are seen to be close to Sangh Parivar.

The Ajmer dargah blast, which killed three and injured 17 people, was handed over to the NIA, the National Investigation Agency in 2011. Public prosecutor Ashwini Sharma told that all 14 witnesses have gone back on their statements recorded before the Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) and a magistrate under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure in 2010.

“After Malegaon blasts SPP asked to go soft on Saffron accused, several witnesses in Ajmer Blasts case turn hostile! Seems to be a clear design by BJP govt to protect Sangh Parivar terrorists in all cases. Hostile witness in Ajmer Blasts case made Minister!”

Prashant Bhushan has further said, “The PM has been trying to shed his image acquired in Gujarat of being a communal leader with his hands soaked in the blood of thousands of Muslims. He must realise that the handling of these cases of saffron terror during his regime is bound to reinforce his earlier image. If he is serious about shedding that image, he must himself intervene to prevent the derailment of these cases.

In any case, the issue is serious enough for the Supreme court to intervene suo moto to start monitoring these cases. This country’s history is replete with cases of mass murders remaining unpunished. We just cannot afford to keep letting this happen again and again.”

One of the witnesses, Randhir Singh joined the BJP and has been made a minister in the newly formed Jharkhand government.
