Though there were 10 accused in the case, only these five were tried. RSS pracharakSunil Joshi was killed during the course of the investigation. Only five accused faced trial as two are still absconders. The Punjab and Haryana High Court had granted bail to Aseemanand in Samjhauta train blast case in 2014. Special public prosecutor Rohini Salian, who appeared for the NIA in the 2008 Malegaon blast case, revealed that the agency told her "to go soft" after the new NDA government took over at the Centre, as reported by The Hindu. Swamy Aseemanand, a resident of Gujarat and head of Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram, was earlier acquitted in the Ajmer Dargah blast case and is now on bail in Samjhauta Express blast case of 2014.

Swami Aseemanand, whose real name is Naba Kumar Sarkar, was arrested on November 19, 2010, from Haridwar in connection with the blast at the Mecca Masjid on May 18, 2007. Ramchandra Kalsangra and Sandeep Dange were shown as absconding.

The NIA had originally filed a chargesheet against ten accused slapping them with the charge of plotting and executive the bomb blast with the intention of avenging the terrorist attacks elsewhere.

2008 Malegaon blast case: On September 29, 2008, a blast ripped through Malegaon, Nashik district, Maharashtra, claiming the lives of seven people and injuring nearly 100 others. The court in Hyderabad's Nampally cited lack of evidence as the reason behind the acquittal.

The judge who pronounced the verdict in the Mecca Masjid blast case in the morning on Monday resigned from his position by evening, surprising many.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra alleged that the Congress has long "defamed" Hindus for votes and demanded that party president Rahul Gandhi and his predecessor Sonia Gandhi apologise for using terms like "Hindu terror". Interestingly, Swami Aseemanand is a former RSS member who had given a signed confession about his involvement.

"The BJP does not comment on the judgment of the court".

According to a report by The Indian Express, Bhavesh had allegedly placed two bombs at Ajmer Dargah.

The court held that none of the charges framed against the accused were proved. He said that justice had not been done to the deceased in the case.
