Mumbai: Muslim-e-Hind, an NGO, filed a PIL in the Bombay high court seeking a first information report, arrest and suspension of several police officers who were directly or indirectly involved in the investigation of 2006 Malegaon serial blasts. The
NGO said that the ATS had falsely implicated nine Muslim youths where as the Hindu hardliners were involved in the blasts.
The PIL has named the then ATS chief K P Raghuvanshi, the then DIG Subodh Kumar Jaiswal and the then Nasik rural SP, Rajvardhan Sinha and urged the HC to instruct the state to set up an SIT to investigate these officers.
The PIL was filed on June 18 and will be heard on June 26. Malegaon residents had raised doubts about the ATS theory that the local youths were responsible for the September 2006 blasts.
