Panjim, Oct 19 (ANI): Sanatana Samstha, the right wing organization that was accused of being behind Friday's blast in Goa, on Monday denied its role in any such activities.

The Sanstha said, "We do not indulge in any anti-social activity and do not encourage the same. That is why on 16th October, we have cooperated with the police investigations and will continue to cooperate in the future too."

Meanwhile, Goa Transport Minster Ramkrishna Dhavlikar admitted that his wife is a member of the sanstha but clarified that she does not hold any position in it.

"My wife has been involved with Sanstha activities for over a decade, primarily meditation activities. She does not hold any post within the Sanstha, and is a volunteer there," Dhavlikar, said.

He also confirmed that his wife spends up to three hours every day at the Sanstha's Centre for Meditation.

However, investigating officials said the Sanstha which was also allegedly behind the recent communal riots in Sangli and Miraj, should be restricted from publishing periodicals and organizing religious discourses

The Maharashtra Police has registered two cases for inciting communal violence and for possessing arms and three cases for inciting hatred against the Sanstha.
