Prime accused in 1993 RSS office blast case arrested

January 6, 2018

Chennai: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) yesterday arrested Mushtaq Ahmed, one of the prime suspects in the 1993 Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) office blast case in Chennai. He had remained elusive for over 24 years.

The powerful blast triggered at the State headquarters building of the RSS in Chetpet in Chennai on Aug.8, 1993, left 11 persons dead and seven others injured. The blast that was triggered using RDX brought down the multi-storeyed RSS office. The case, which was initially investigated by the Crime Branch CID, was transferred to the CBI by the State Government.

Ahmed, who was allegedly instrumental in procuring explosive substances for the terrorist attack and in arranging hideouts for the accused at various places, was reported to be absconding.

Since he could not be traced, the TADA Court declared him a proclaimed offender on Jan.5, 1994. On completion of investigation in the case, the CBI filed the chargesheet.

CBI had announced a reward of Rs.10 lakh for providing credible information about Ahmed.

    Now it is the time goer all the “secular” forces to dub him as innocent victim and bash Modi, Pappu need to visit him with his gang and outpouring the show of protest and Manmohan to defend him to say Muslims are not safe in India ! ! Needles to say, all sleeper cell members will start commenting to show their support to the terrorist by blaming RSS and BJP! After all the people who were killed were Hindus!
