Mumbai: The discharge applications filed by two accused in the 2006 Malegaon mosque blasts case was on Saturday opposed by a co-accused, Dhan Singh, who has also challenged the legality of a chargesheet filed against him and three others.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on May 22 filed a chargesheet against four persons suspected to be belonging to a right wing outfit, blaming them to be the engineers of Malegaon serial blasts that killed 31.
While moving the application before the designated judge Y D Shinde, Singh stated that the ‘further investigation’ done by NIA is illegal and bad in law. The NIA is likely to file its reply on July 22.
Shinde terror remark: A trial court has given a last opportunity to a person to file an affidavit to show why he wants the court to summon PM Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi as witnesses in his complaint against Union home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde for his alleged “Hindu terror” remarks made at Jaipur early this year.
