HC bail for two in Malegaon case: ‘Nothing on them’

Observing that they had no active role to play in the conspiracy that led to the September 2008 bomb blast in Malegaon, Bombay High Court on Thursday granted bail to Shivnarayan Kalsangra and Shyam Sahu, who were among the 12 accused booked under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA). The two became the first accused in the case to secure bail.

In a blow to the prosecution, Justice A M Thipsay observed, “There is no sufficient material to show prima facie involvement of the two accused in the case. They have not taken any active part in the blast conspiracy. The only link of these two accused to the blast case is that they knew prime accused Ramchandra Kalsangra, who is yet to be arrested.”

Twelve people have been arrested for their involvement in the terror attack that killed six and injured nearly a hundred people in the communally sensitive town. The High Court has asked Kalsangra and Sahu, both from Indore, to furnish sureties of Rs 1 lakh each.
