MUMBAI: In one of the earliest cases of right-wing terror attacks--the blast at a mosque in Purna town in Parbhani district of Maharashtra, the court has acquitted the accused due to 'lack of sufficient evidence'.
The blast had occurred during Friday prayers in the mosque in the year 2004. Dozens were injured in the incident. ATS had arrested Rakesh Dhavade and two others, Sanjay Chaudhary and Gururaj Tuptewar.
Dhavade was discharged earlier by a court. Now the two others have been acquitted. The lawyer representing the accused said that the prosecution could not prove its case. An appeal may be filed against the verdict soon. [September 13, 2018 NewsBits.in]
