    MHA: Most terror cases have been solved



    Under attack by the Opposition over investigations into terror cases, the home ministry tried to put the record straight on Thursday by claiming that 'almost all major terror cases' had been solved.

    The BJP had alleged no terror cases have been solved by the investigating agencies in the last eight years.
    The ministry said in its statement that more arrests were expected in the terror cases allegedly involving the right wing extremists.

    "The National investigation Agency (NIA) has recently arrested Kamal Chouhan and it is expected that more arrests will be made leading to the solving of these cases," the statement said.

    The ministry, however, accepted that three terror cases - the 2008 Mehrauli blast, 2006 Jama Masjid blasts in Delhi, and the 2010 Varanasi blast - remain unsolved so far.

    Giving an overall picture of the terror cases investigation, the ministry statement said: "Since May, 2000 there have been 46 major terrorist incidents. Of these, all but 7 cases have been solved. In 9 cases, convictions have been obtained. Of the remaining 30 cases, chargesheets have been filed in 29 and trial has commenced in 19 cases. Two cases ended in acquittals."

    Here is the original press release.

    In short, 46 terror incidents in the last decade.


    Press Information Bureau English Releases
    16 February 2012
    The Union Ministry of Home Affairs has issued the following statement regarding number of major terror incident cases solved by investigating agencies.

    “Government’s attention has been drawn to a statement made by the spokesperson of a political party that no case of terror has been solved by the investigating agencies in the last eight years.

    We have compiled a list of major terrorist incidents since May, 2000. Major terrorist incident is defined as a case where at least some persons have suffered injuries.


    Since May, 2000 there have been 46 major terrorist incidents. Of these, all but 7 cases have been solved. In 9 cases, convictions have been obtained. In the remaining 30 cases, charge sheets have been filed in 29 cases and trial has commenced in 19 cases. Two cases ended in acquittal and appeals have been preferred.


    Of the 7 “unsolved” cases, four cases are close to being solved.

    The recent busting of an IM module has revealed that the said module was responsible for the following incidents:


    (i) 13.2.2010 - Bomb blast at German Bakery, Pune

    (ii) 17.4.2010 - Bomb blast near Chinnaswamy Stadium,

    Bengaluru

    (iii) 19.9.2010 - Shoot out and blast near Jama Masjid, Delhi

    (iv) 13.7.2011 - Serial bomb blasts in Mumbai



    As regards the German Bakery case, one charge sheet has been filed, one of the accused is facing trial, and six accused have been declared absconders.


    It is also pertinent to point out that some cases are being reinvestigated/further investigated. In this category fall the following cases:



    (i) 08.09.2006 – Bomb blast in Malegaon, Maharashtra

    (ii) 18.02.2007 – Bomb blast in Samjhauta Express, Haryana

    (iii) 18.05.2007 – Bomb blast in Mecca Masjid, Andhra Pradesh

    (iv) 11.10.2007 – Bomb blast in Ajmer Shariff Dargah, Rajasthan

    (v) 29.09.2008 – Bomb blast in Malegaon, Maharashtra

    (vi) 29.09.2008 – Bomb blast in Modassa, Gujarat


    NIA has arrested Nabakumar Sarkar @ Swami Aseemanand, Lokesh Sharma, Devender Gupta and some others. Recently, NIA has arrested Kamal Chouhan and it is expected that more arrests will be made leading to the solving of the above cases.


    The facts stated above will make it clear that the Government and the investigating agencies are sparing no effort to solve every terror case and bring the perpetrators to justice.”
