Akshardham Temple terror attack : Ahmedabad crime branch arrested accused Ajmeri Abdul Rashid

Ahmedabad crime branch on Saturday arrested 2002 Akshardham Temple terror attack accused Ajmeri Abdul Rashid. Ajmeri was in Riyadh and had allegedly been involved in the Akshardham terror attack conspiracy. He came to Ahmedabad in the early hours of Saturday and was immediately arrested by the Ahmedabad crime branch, as per Times of India report. In 2002, at least 30 persons were killed and 42 injured in a terrorist attack on the Akshardham temple complex of the Swaminarayan sect in Gandhinagar, capital of Gujarat. Narendra Modi was then Chief Minister of the state. The intense investigation began soon after terrorists attacked Akshardham on 24 September 2002. The Supreme Court slammed the Gujarat Police for the incompetence with which it investigated the case. The bench gave the decision holding that the prosecution failed to establish the guilt of the accused.
