Mecca Masjid verdict: Swamy demands to lodged case against Chidambaram, Owaisi-Congress questions on NIA
New Delhi: In the matter of the Mecca Masjid blast case, all five accused, including Swami Aseemanand, have been acquitted from the special court of National Investigation Agency (NIA). Congress and All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Chief Asaduddin Owaisi attacked on NIA about this. Owaisi accused the NIA of being deaf and blind parrots in the case of intervening in politics. On the other hand, Congress also questioned the investigating agency.
At the same time, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy made target on former Home Minister P Chidambaram for forming the term ‘saffron terrorism’ during the UPA government’s tenure. They have demanded to file a case against Chidambaram. After the acquittal of all the accused, the NIA is also in the midst of questions. In such a big question, who was behind the blast and who was the real culprit for the killing of 9 people in it?
While tweeting on this decision, Owaisi said that NIA did not lobby for the right of the case. He said, “After June 2014, most of the witnesses in the Mecca Masjid blast case were reversed by their statements. The NIA did not lobby the case as expected or they were not allowed to do so by the ‘political master’. Unless partial things happen in criminal cases, justice will not be available.’
