Probe to continue after charge-sheets are filed against two others accused
The Andhra Pradesh Assembly was informed on Monday that further investigations into the role of Swami Asimanand, who was arrested last month in connection with the Mecca Masjid bomb blast here, would continue after charge sheets against two other accused in the case were filed in a local court.
A written reply given by Home Minister P. Sabitha Indra Reddy during question hour said Swami Asimanand and other suspects would be further grilled following the filing of charge sheets. All the accused, who were at large, would also be brought to book.
Ms. Reddy said the CBI, which was probing the case, arrested 58 persons, including Swami Asimanand, in 38 cases revolving around the bomb blast. A charge sheet would soon be filed against Devender Gupta and Lokesh Sharma, who were arrested ahead of Swami Asimanand.
Ms. Reddy furnished details of the 58 arrested persons and 49 others who were let off as their complicity in the cases was not established. She said the report of the Justice V. Bhaskara Rao Commission, which went into the firing after the blast, would be tabled in the House within six months.
