New Delhi, May 13: The Congress on Friday alleged that Malegaon blast accused were being set free because they have links with the BJP-led central government.
"The central government wanted to save Malegaon (blast case) accused as they have connections with them," senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh told the media here.
"Even Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) wants to save the people involved in terror activities."
Digvijaya Singh's remarks came amid reports that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) had given a clean chit to Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, the key accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast case that killed six people in the predominantly Muslim town of Maharashtra.
The NIA is to submit its charges in a Mumbai court later on Friday.
