With the arrest of Godhra arsonist Farooq Bhana, the incident is gaining importance after 14 years. The conspirator of the most famous Godhra train carnage is arrested within the municipality and it has become the top news. It is notable that the conspirator fled from Pakistan before returning and living under an assumed identity in Mumbai. He was allegedly the main arsonist, who gutted the S-6 coach in the Sabarmati Express which was crammed with kar Sewaks in the year 2011. We can call it a big breakthrough but it came rather late. The lead to the arrest came as ATS was tipped off about Bhana’s travel plans from Mumbai where he was believed to be living under the assumed identity of a property broker. He hatched the plan to attack the Sabarmati Express but also was allegedly one of those, who actually carried out the mission with both petrol cans and poured the highly inflammable material inside the S-6 sleeper coach to cause extensive loss to human lives and their belongings. The key accused in the arrest of the Godhra Train carnage may break the ice and will lead to many more truths in this open genocide of kar sewaks in recent times. Thus Godhra incident is gaining momentum once again.
