Goa Home Minister Ravi Naik has said that the government would examine the chargesheet filed by National Investigation Agency in the Margao bomb blast case before deciding a ban on right wing Hindu organisation ’Sanatan Sanstha’.

“We will go through the chargesheet by NIA before deciding anything,” Mr. Naik told reporters here on Monday adding that the Director General of Police (DGP) Bhimsen Bassi will be asked to examine the chargesheet.

Mr. Naik said that the State government had not thought about the ban earlier and is solely waiting for NIA investigation to get over.

“I can’t say whether the ban would be recommended or not,” the Home Minister said.

NIA, which is probing the Margao bomb blast case is expected to file the chargesheet by May 17, 2010 in two different courts at Margao and Vasco.
