BJP, Javed Akhtar spar on Mecca Masjid acquittal

However, the pitch was queered to some extent in the evening with special NIA judge Ravindra Reddy, who delivered the verdict, resigning under mysterious circumstances.

It was not known immediately on the exact reason behind the resignation of the Judge.

"Bomb Ka Jawab Bomb Se Dena Hai" this is what was widely quoted by the (NIA) in all the chargesheets filed against the accused in, but after their acquittal by the court, the question now remains 'Who bombed Mecca Masjid?'

Apart from him, those acquitted are - Devendra Gupta, Lokesh Sharma, Bharat Mohanlal Rateshwar alias Bharat Bhai and Rajendra Chowdhary.

Following is the chronology of events in the Mecca Masjid Blast case.

According to Telangana lawyers, Mr Harniath was incompetent for lacking any knowledge related to terror cases and had very little experience in criminal law, yet, he was given such an important terror attack case. Neither for those who suffered the loss of loved ones, nor for the country's security establishment which must find and ensure punishment for the villains if they are indeed not the five accused as the court has held. The other accused including Sandeep Dange, Ramchandra kalsangara and Amit Chouhan are on run while Sunil Joshi was murdered.

The Dutch youngster later apologised in person to Vettel and to his Red Bull team on social media. "I think he got it". I left a little bit of room as well", Vettel told Sky Sports . "I was expecting him to come earlier".

The investigators suspected the involvement of right-wing extremists in all these cases, which is why the home ministry made a decision to bunch the cases and hand over the investigations to the NIA. As people gathered to express outrage over the terror attack, police opened fire on them claiming five more lives. Investigation against two others - Tejram Parmar and Amith Chowhan - is still on.

Reacting to their acquittals, the BJP claimed the Congress' conspiracy of "Hindu terror" stands exposed. Justice hasn't been done in the case. The judgment has come as a dampener to the minority community who are now wondering in case these accused did not execute the bomb blasts at the Mecca Masjid then who carried out the deed.

An Indian court on Monday acquitted all 10 defendants accused in the deadly 2007 bombing of a historic mosque in Hyderabad, southern India.

Owaisi had on Monday slammed the NIA for "not pursuing the case" and alleged that the elite investigation agency was not allowed to do so by the "political masters". Asked by a reporter to comment on the verdict, Rahul ignored the poser and told his driver to move ahead.

Ten persons were named as accused in the case but only five of them were arrested and sent up for trial.
