Denying any involvement in the Margao blast, Hindu right-wing organisation Sanatan Sanstha today alleged that Goa Home Minister Ravi Naik is falsely implicating the outfit to hide his failure.
“Naik’s remarks that police are probing our foreign links is ridiculous. It is indeed a big defeat of Goa government that they are still unable to find real culprits. Naik is making the allegations just to hide his failure,” a Sanatan spokesperson told PTI.
On media reports that police recovered “some objectionable things” from Sanatan’s Ramnathi ashram, the outfit said, “nothing has been recovered from the ashram.”
Earlier in the day, Mr Naik said that “some foreigners often visited the ashram at Ramnathi. I have checked with the police. They were not even submitting their C forms to police station.”
Foreigners on tourist visas are required to submit the C forms.
“We have found that many foreigners used to visit the place. We need to know what they were doing here,” the minister said, adding police had tried to get the details of those people but the ashram has no record of them.
