Cop probing Samjhauta Express case gets threat to life

The woman police official, Bharti Arora, who is heading the investigations into the train blasts that had left 68 dead, has received threat to her life from an extremist outfit.

The Railway Superintendent of Police (Haryana) Bharti Arora who is conducting the investigations has received thretening call from a person who claimed to be member of an extremist group.

The caller warned her that if she went ahead with the investigations into the train bombing case, she would face dire consequences. On her complaint, a case has been registered against the unidentified caller.

The blasts that had occurred in the Samjhauta Express train which was carrying Pakistani citizens, had earlier been blamed on Islamic militants but later it was found that Hindutva extremists had a role in the terror strike.

Following the arrest of Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, Samir Kulkarni, Army officer Lt Col Prasad Purohit and other members of Abhinav Bharat organisation, the police probe shifted to the role of Hindu organisations.

The investigations into the Malegaon blast had led the police towards the Hindu outfits and their involvement in the train blasts. The Samjhauta Express terror strike had occurred near Panipat on February 18, 2007 and the case is yet to be solved.
