Hindu extremists held for terrorist attack in Ajmer

The blast in the Sufi shrine of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti at Ajmer two years ago was the handiwork of Hindutva-inspired miliants. Their aim was to engineer communal rift and set off Hindu-Muslim riots.

The Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) of Rajasthan police has arrested three persons including Devendra Gupta, member of the fundamentalist Hindu group Abhinav Bharat that had a role in Malegaon blast also.

The Home Minister of Rajasthan, Shanti Dhariwal, has said that the investigative agencies found sufficient evidence of Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) in the attack on the shrine.

The Ajmer Dargah attracts millions of devotees from all over the world. Two more persons, one from Rajasthan and another from MP, have been arrested for the terrorist strike that had occurred on October 11, 2007.

Three persons were killed and 30 injured when a bomb hidden in tiffin box had exploded though another bomb that was also planted had failed to explode.

The role of Hindu activists in terrorism had first came after Malegaon blast probe when Sadhvi Pragya Thakur, Colonel Srikant Purohit and their accomplices were caught.

The blasts in Mecca Masjid at Hyderabad, Modassa in Gujarat, blasts in Purna, Jalna, Nanded, Samjhauta Express and some other terrorist attacks are also believed to be the handiwork of Abhinav Bharat.
