It makes no sense, why should the government file an appeal. There would not be any fresh probe in the case, Singh also said. The NIA had probed the matter. Only after that they filed the chargesheet. Now that the court judgment is out, one has to rely on that, he also said.

The BJP, while in the opposition had maintained that Aseemanand and others had been falsely implicated in the case. The BJP had also accused the Congress of appeasement. It was done to appease the minorities, the BJP had also said.
