'Take action against Maharashtra police officers who framed Muslims in Malegaon blasts'

After RSS leader and terrorist mastermind Aseemanand's confession that he was involved in the bomb blasts in Malegaon on two occasions, the political parties and local leaders have urged the government to take action against police officers who framed Muslim youths on both the occasions in Malegaon.

Senior leader Nihal Ahmed has castigated the Maharashtra police for claiming to crack the cases of blasts in Malegaon in 2006 and 2008. He said that it was always understand that innocents were arrested and thus the residents had shown black flags to Congress-NCP leaders in the past also but now the confession of RSS leader Aseemanand has proved the residents of Malegaon right.

MLA Mufti Mohd Ismail Qasmi has said that educated Muslim youths were arrested in hordes and there should be action against SP Raj Vardhan and ATS chief KP Raghuvanshi for the biased investigation and for falsely implicating the youths.

Senior leaders Asif Sheikh Rashid and Haji Yousuf have also demanded that the youths who were jailed should be immediately relased as real culprits have confessed their role. A number of other organisations have also questioned the role of ATS chief Rakesh Maria and other officers for the manner in which probes were conducted earlier.

Malegaon was targeted twice by Saffron terrorists. On September 8, 2006 blasts had occurred at Mushavarat Chowk on Shab-e-Barat in which 31 persons were killed. Two years later another blast had occurred in the same town. Abhinav Bharat's Pragya Thakur was arrested in this case.

Now Aseemanand has confessed involvement in Muslim-dominated Malegaon, Ajmer Dargah, Hyderabad's Mecca Masjid, Modassa, Samjhauta Express and some other blasts. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is conducting probe into the case.
