AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi raked up a fresh controversy on Tuesday by questioning the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for allegedly going slow on blasts purportedly carried out by non-Muslims.
In a series of tweets, the Hyderabad Lok Sabha MP questioned the NIA and also mounted a veiled attack on the Centre saying, “Do not be surprised the way NIA is pursuing those Bomb Blast cases where accused are Non-Muslims they will be exonerated bcos of Ache Din?”.
Owaisi stoked a fresh controversy saying, “Why can’t our Premier Investigation Agencies show same Urgency to convict all alleged terrorist cases demolition Babri Masjid pending since 1992?”
Casting aspersion on NIA’s probe into Hyderabad blasts, the Lok Sabha MP said, “Dilsukhnagar bomb blast accused can be convicted in 3 years why is it taking long to convict MMasjid, Ajmer, Malegaon Can NIA throw some light.”
Owaisi, who is known making controversial statements, ‘accepted’ the NIA special court’s verdict on Dilsukhnagar twin blasts in which 18 people were killed in February 2013.
“Dilsukhnagar blast courts have given a verdict which must be accepted ,terrorist should be punished,” he tweeted.
Five senior operatives of banned terror outfit Indian Mujahideen including Yasin Bhatkal were on Monday awarded death penalty by a special NIA court in the February 2013 Disukhnagar blasts in Hyderabad. The main accused, Riyaz Bhatkal, is absconding.
Eighteen people were killed and 131 injured in two deadly explosions in Dilsukhnagar, a crowded shopping area in the city, on February 21, 2013.
