Court has announced verdict in 18 May 2017 Mecca Masjid Bomb Blast case today, pronouncing Devender Gupta, Asimanand, Bharat Bhai, Rajender Chowdary & Lokesh Sharma as innocent as there is no evidence to prove them guilty. MIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi faulted NIA's prosecution in this case calling it a compromised one. Claiming that the case was diluted after June 2014, Asaduddin indicated central govt's hand in the verdict in favour of the accused, indirectly. The National Bravery Award recipient Irfan demanded an answer to the question as to who the real culprits of Mecca Masjid Blasts are. BJP leader Lakshman faulted Congress & MIM for politicising court's verdict.
