Purohit supplied RDX for Samjhauta Express blast: ATS

Nashik, November 15: : Malegaon blast accused Lieutenant Colonel P S Purohit on Saturday was produced before a Nashik court. The court remanded him to police custody till November 18.The Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) claimed that Purohit supplied RDX for Samjhauta Express blast.

Public prosecutor Ajay Misar said Malegaon blast accused Lt Col Purohit had links in Samjautha Express blast. He handed RDX to one ‘Bhagwan’.

Ajay Misar further said Abhinav Bharat treasurer Ajay Rahirkar had handed Rs 2.5 lakh to Lt Col P S Purohit.

Lt Col P S Purohit denied being tortured by the ATS.

Purohit, who was with Military Intelligence, had told the authorities that he had thrown RDX into the Jhelum river, the special counsel said.

However, it is suspected that he transported the RDX to Deolali in Nashik, he said.

The ATS also told the court that it was investigating the source of the RDX which Purohit had obtained.

Purohit is also alleged to have conducted an arms and explosives training camp for members of right wing organisation Abhinav Bharat in Panchmarhi in Madhya Pradesh between October 16 and 21 2006, Misar said.

The public prosecutor told the court that they had found evidence of links between arrested Sadhvi Pragya Thakur Singh and religious leader Dayanand Pandey arrested in Kanpur.

The ATS has found during the course of the investigations that Pandey had introduced Purohit to Ramji Kalsangra who is wanted in the Malegaon blast, Misar said.

The court dismissed an application filed by Purohit’s father-in-law alleging torture in police custody after the army official denied it in the court. Medical records also did not show any evidence of physical torture.

‘We are disturbed by political insinuations’

The Maharashtra police are disturbed due to the insinuations made by political parties over the investigations into the September 29 Malegaon blasts, its chief A N Roy said on Saturday.

“We are disturbed by these insinuations… political parties should allow us to investigate without making such statements,” DGP Roy told a private news channel.

Stating that the probe into the blasts that claimed six lives is reaching its final stages, Roy said, adding “every arrest made in the case is backed by strong evidence.”

Roy’s remarks come in the backdrop of various political leaders, particularly those belonging to the Opposition Shiv Sena-BJP alliance, questioning the way the blast investigations are being carried out.

An army officer, Lt Col P S Purohit, is among those arrested in connection with the blasts, being probed by the tate’s Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), in the weavers’ town of North Maharashtra….

Please note that Samjhauta blast was linked in someway with Mecca Masjid blast as per the inquiry that took place after Mecca Masjid blast… both were allegedly executed by Islamists.. Now tell me, who is behind Mecca Masjid Blast? ref
