Key RSS man linked to Ajmer Blasts
The Central Bureau of Investigation today named an important person in the RSS in the chargesheet pertaining to the Ajmer blasts. Indresh Kumar whose name had been doing the rounds for quite some time finds himself today in the chargesheet and the man himself has denied any involvement in the case and has termed it as a political conspiracy.
Indresh Kumar, is the national executive member and the sah prachar pramukh in the RSS. His name cropped for the first time when prime accused in the Malegaon blasts, Colonel Shrikanth Purohith revealed the same.
The ATS which was investigating the case had said that Purohith had a grouse against Kumar since he believed that the latter was responsible for killing of Hindus in Nepal. It was also said that Purohith believed that it was Kumar who had leaked information about him and Sadhvi Pragya Singh to the police which eventually led to their arrest.
Indresh Kumar has been in the thick of the action at all times. He had played an active role in the Amarnath stir and also the Jammu issue. He had spent years coordinating activities of the Sangh Parivar in the region. Apart from this he had also coordinated the activities of the Rashtriya Muslim Manch, an affiliate of the RSS which terms itself as a nationalistic organization of the Muslims. In the RSS circles, Kumar was no ordinary man and many term him as one of the most dynamic leaders.
Problems for Indresh Kumar started only once the interrogation of Purohith commenced. Purohith claimed that he had met with the RSS Sarsanghchalak in Jabalpur in the year 2009 to complain about Kumar. Purohith who was part of the Abhinav Bharath had said that Kumar was responsible for the death of Hindus in Nepal. Investigators told rediff.com that the problem was a difference of opinion. Kumar felt that democracy should be restored in Nepal while Abhinav Bharath felt that King Gyanendra ought to be supported. Purohith felt that supporting democracy meant supporting the Maoists in Nepal which in turn led to the death of many Hindus.
CBI sources told rediff.com that the name of Kumar has now cropped up in the chargesheet since they have information that he was part of a meeting held in Jaipur in which six others were present. The information with us suggests that the meeting that was held was to plan the Ajmer blasts. We are yet to investigate further into the matter, sources also pointed out. There were five others in that meeting of 2005 and once we are able to corroborate all that can we come to a final conclusion, sources further pointed out.
Ganesh Sovani, advocate for Sadhvi Pragya Singh, an accused in the Malegaon blasts case says that this is ridicoulous. This is a meeting that has taken place in 2005 and the investigating agency is not sure about it too. They have not been able to prove till date the conspiracy in the Malegaon case. There is a claim that Sadhvi had revealed the name of Kumar, but to the best of my knowledge she has never taken his name. In this case only Sameer Dange and Kakasangra have been shown as the wanted accused. Both Sadhvi and Kumar are not shown as wanted accused and that leads to suspicion. If the charge was really that strong then the CBI would not have let him roam around and would have picked him up immediately. There is no warrant against Sadhvi too in this case.
