Ajmer blast case: Two get life imprisonment
A special National Investigation Agency court in Jaipur on Wednesday sentenced two persons to life imprisonment after holding them guilty in the Ajmer blasts case. Devendra Gupta and Bhavesh Patel were held guilty and ordered to undergo imprisonment for life.
On the last date of hearing, the court had acquitted Swami Aseemanand in the case. The court had held the deceased Sunil Joshi, Bhavesh and Devendra guiltyin the case. On October 11, 2007, a blast rocked the dargah of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti, killing three and injuring 17 people.
The case witnessed several ups and downs with several witnesses turning hostile.
The case was handed over to the NIA in 2011. But the hearings kept being postponed as the witnesses made applications delaying their appearance before the court, citing threat to their lives among other reasons.
