The bomb blast, which took place during Friday prayers at the Mecca Masjid, killed nine people and injured 58 others, and was allegedly carried out by a group of right-wing Hindu terrorists.
NIA takes over the case from CBI in April 2011, which re-registers the case under relevant sections of IPC and Explosives Substances Act and Unlawful Activites (Prevention) Act. All the five were acquitted by the court on Monday.
A special Anti-terror Court today acquitted the five men in the 2007 Mecca Masjid blast case, ruling that the prosecution failed to prove charges against them. All allegations could not be proved against any one of the accused. Only five accused faced trial as two are still absconders. He told television channels that accused in several cases were acquitted since the BJP-led government was formed at the Centre four years ago. "Hence. all persons are acquitted", said NIA court judge K. Ravinder Reddy. The explosion in the 13th century Dargah of Sufi mystic Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti during Ramzan, had killed three people. It is for this reason that CBI had claimed that the two blasts were linked. The phones even had similar IMEI numbers and SIM card numbers were also in a sequence. However, he was granted conditional bail in 2017. "The defence argued that the so-called confessional statement was forced from Swami Aseemanand in order to create a theory of "Bhagwa Atankwad" (saffron terror)", he said.
It is thought unlikely that the NIA will go in appeal. As many as 42 witnesses have turned hostile.
Both the CBI and the NIA had investigated the blasts. Another accused, Sunil Joshi, an RSS functionary, was shot dead on Dec 29, 2007, in Dewas, Madhya Pradesh. Police sounded an alert in Hyderabad and stepped up security, as the verdict also triggered a political slugfest.
All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen President Asaduddin Owaisi, who had earlier blamed the agency for failing to properly prosecute the accused, said Reddy's decision was intriguing. "Besides, he added that evidence offered by Aseemanand's confession got further weakened as it was being used against a co-accused", the former NIA official said.
"BJP must be wanting to distribute candies and burst crackers after this verdict". His letter was sent to the Chief Justice of the Hyderabad High Court.
"NDTV has reported that the judgment has far-reaching effects as the UPA governments plea to blame the blast on "#Hindu terror" groups came a cropper.
