2007 Mecca Masjid blast verdict: Swami Aseemanand, 4 others acquitted

All five people accused in the 2007 Mecca Masjid blast case have been acquitted by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) Special Court in Hyderabad. The court acquitted all accused due to lack of direct evidence. The fourth additional metropolitan sessions-cum-special court for NIA cases had concluded the trial, and last week posted the case for judgment on 16 April.

Meanwhile, NIA has said that it will examine the court judgment after it gets a copy of the same and decide further course of action.The pipe bomb explosion at the historic Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad killed eight and left 58 others injured. Five others were also killed after police opened fire to control a rioting mob during the Friday prayers in Mecca Masjid on May 18, 2007.
