Twelve years after 67 people lost their lives in three serial blasts that ripped throught the national Capital, a Delhi court said the police "miserably failed" to prove charges against the accused.
He said the two who were acquitted - Mohammad Hussain Fazli and Mohd Rafiq Shah - were part of the planning and that their names had surfaced during the course of the investigation.
The serial blasts at three places - Sarojini Nagar, Paharganj and Kalkaji - on October 29, 2005 had taken a toll of 67 lives and injured over 225 persons. Tariq Ahmed Dar, Mohammed Hussain Fazili and Mohammed Rafiq Shah were facing trial in the case.
Dar has been held guilty under the UAPA (unlawful activities prevention act).
Observing that no conclusive evidence was found against Dar about his alleged role in the blasts, Additional Sessions Judge Reetesh Singh consequently, acquitted him of the charges of conspiracy to wage a war against the government by carrying out the blasts.
DCP (special cell) Sanjeev Yadav, who is one of the investigators in the case, told The Indian Express that Tariq Ahmed Dar was not the main conspirator in the case.
"The solitary piece of evidence can not lead to any indefinite inference that he (Fazili) was part of the conspiracy which was behind the blasts", the judge said. Dar was arrested in Kashmir on November 10, 2005. But the court said that the call was recorded after the blasts and asked that why would the accused make such call to inform his aide as the matter was already widely covered by the media.
The prosecution built its case on the call intercepts and locations of the accused as key evidence.
The prosecution's case was that Dar used a specific phrase, 'Diwali ka Tofha, ' which was pertaining to the serial blasts.
They said they will challenge the verdict in a higher court. The three blasts took place just two days before Diwali.
The prosecution had also alleged that Dar had received about Rs 14 lakh through Hawala routes.
