Malegaon blast: Hindutva group leader grilled, for suspected terror links

Himani Sawarkar, the firebrand woman leader of Abhinav Bharat, a group that is under the scanner of Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) for its alleged role in Malegaon blasts, was quizzed today.

The sleuths of ATS interrogated Sawarkar, who is also the relative of Hindutva ideologue Vinayak Damodar Sawarkar and Gopal Godse, an accomplice in the murder of Mahatma Gandhi.

Himani Savarkar was quizzed for three hours. She was later released. Earlier, Lt Col S P Purohit, Sadhwi Pragya Singh Thakur, ex-army man Ramesh Upadhyay and Swami Dayanand Pande were arrested in connection with the blast.

They were all linked with the shadowy right-wing extremist group Abhinav Bharat. She was also trying to get legal aid and generate funds to fight their case.
