Speaking to ANI, NCP leader Tariq Anwar said that it would show lack of interest to pursue to matter on part of the government if they do not approach a higher court.

Another NCP leader Majeed Memon told ANI that it must be ensured that the acquittal did not happen due to pressure from the government.

He said an appeal can be filed as the acquittal was based on lack of evidence.

Swami Aseemanand was acquitted in the 2007 Ajmer blasts case on Wedensday. The special National Investigation Agency court, however, found three persons guilty in the case.

The court held the deceased Sunil Joshi, Bhavesh and Devendra guilty in the case. On October 11, 2007, a blast rocked the dargah of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti, killing three and injuring 17 people.
