Bail plea of Manohar Narwaria, Rajendra Chaudhary, Dhan Singh and Lokesh Sharma accused in 2006 Malegaon blasts has been rejected by NIA court on Monday
Nine accused were initially arrested in the case and charge sheeted by the Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS). One of them died while the case was pending. Later, CBI, which took over the investigations, also confirmed the charges against them.
Subsequently, NIA was asked to probe the case and the agency arrested another set of people belonging to the majority community, who continue to be accused in the case.
The judge said that he was accepting the discharge application filed by the 8 accused as there was no evidence to prove their guilt.
