Hindu orgs to provide legal aid to Malegaon accused

Pune, November 7: : Pro-Hindu organisations have decided to start a Legal Aid Firm to support the right wing forces accused in the Malegaon bomb blasts, a leader of Abhinav Bharat and Hindu Mahasabha said in Pune on Friday.An account has already been opened with a private bank in Pune to offer monetary help to all those Hindus being wrongly hunted for alleged terrorist acts, Himani Savarkar, said.

Asked about reported confessions made by Lt Col Prasad Purohit regarding hatching the Malegaon blast conspiracy, Savarkar said, the Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) personnel were harassing the accused and extracting statements under duress.

Alleging that she was not allowed to present a copy of ‘Bhagwad Gita’ to Sadhvi Pragya when she was brought to the Nasik court a few days back, she said, “This is terrorism in police uniform.”

Savarkar, who left for New Delhi last night, said Hindu outfits would engage best legal talent to defend the wrongly accused community members in the Malegaon case and they would also consult Supreme Court lawyers for the purpose.
