Days after the arrest of a disgruntled RSS worker in connection with the Samjhauta Express blast case, the government today said more people will be arrested soon for their alleged involvement in bombing of several religious shrines, including Ajmer dargah.

In a statement, the Home Ministry said six terror cases -- 2006 Malegaon blast, 2007 bombing in Samjhauta Express, Hyderabad's Mecca Masjid and Ajmer dargah and 2008 explosions in Malegaon and Modassa -- are being re-investigated and one of them (Modassa) is on the verge of being solved.

All these terror acts were allegedly carried out by right wing extremist forces and their probe by investigating agencies are at different stages.

The Home Ministry said the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested Naba Kumar Sarkar alias Swami Aseemanand, Lokesh Sharma, Devender Gupta and a few others in connection with these six cases.

"Recently, NIA has arrested Kamal Chouhan and it is expected that more arrests will be made leading to solving of the above cases," the statement said.

Chauhan, a disgruntled RSS worker arrested by the NIA on Sunday, has claimed he had planted bombs on board Samjhauta Express that left 68 people, mostly Pakistanis, dead.

The Home Ministry's response came following a statement by Opposition BJP that no case of terror has been solved by investigating agencies even since the UPA came to power in the Centre eight years ago.

The Home Ministry said apart from Gujarat's Modassa blast case, investigating agencies are on the verge of solving three other cases -- 2010 blasts in Chinnaswamy stadium (Bangalore), 2010 shootout and blast near Jama Masjid in Delhi and July 13, 2011 serial blasts in Mumbai.

"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," it said.

Of the seven unsolved cases, four are close to being solved. The three unsolved cases are 2006 twin blasts in Delhi's Jama Masjid and 2008 blast in Mehrauli and 2010 blast in Varanasi.

The recent busting of an Indian Mujahideen revealed that the group was responsible for the blasts in Chinnaswamy stadium, (2010) shootout and blast near Jama Masjid, (2011) serial blasts in Mumbai and 2010 bombing in Pune's German Bakery.

"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," the statement said.

The government and the investigating agencies are sparing no effort to solve every terror case and bring the perpetrators to justice, it said.

The BJP had recently expressed concerns over the terror attacks in different parts of the country and alleged that the government has failed to solve them satisfactorily.

After the way a decent man like Khurshed made an ass of himself and exposed his true worth, I don't believe a word this fool Govt has to say!

I had so much of respect for Khurshed.

He is such a let down as as good as a Moradabad brass seller under the influence of the mad Mullah!

Sooner these frauds and traitors to secularism that we all hold dear goes, the better,

But then, who will replace them?

It is all boiled down to gaining political mileage. Sadly the nation is nowhere in the priority list.

Will Maino shed a tear for these chaps also..? Or the tear glands get activated only in the case of Islamic terrorists ?

And FYI almost 90% of the terrorist acts in India are of the Islamic/jihadist hue. But in that case "terror has no religion"..but two alleged acts of right wing acts and we have the whole bogey of "saffron" terrorism.

Hypocrisy ? Yes. Indian Secularism ? Yes , Yes !!

Notice the language right wing terror case. And on the other hand terms like Islamic terror or otherwise is actively discouraged.
I don't see the difference between the two.

Doesn't Islamic terror also qualify as right wing terror?

Left wing terror would be Maoists, Naxals, ULFA, etc.

where did you get 90% figure from ?

or have you forgotten naxals and north east groups.

This is islamic terror victims (excluding j&k)



this is by north east groups in north east



and these are naxals



Despite enveloping uncertainty, unremitting misgovernance and widespread public perceptions of insecurity, the reality of India's multiple terrorist and insurgent movements is that most of them are weakening. For the ninth year in a row, total fatalities due to terrorist and insurgent conflicts in the country continued their decline, registering a total of 1,902 deaths in 2010, as against 2,232 in 2009, and a peak of 5,839 in 2001 (all data from the South Asia Terrorism Portal database). Fatalities in 2011 currently total 117 (till February 13).

The worst and steadily worsening of conflicts in India is, without dispute, the Maoist insurgency, principally spearheaded by the Communist Party of India – Maoist (CPI-Maoist), but including at least another 20 minor Left Wing Extremist (LWE, also called Naxalite) factions. Naxalite-related fatalities, at 1,180 in 2010, now significantly outstrip the combined total of all other terrorist and insurgent movements in the country.

Total fatalities resulting from the Pakistan-backed Islamist terrorist campaigns in Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) remained at 375 in 2010, the same number as the preceding year, though this figure excludes the 111 persons killed (overwhelmingly in Police firing) in the terrorist and separatist-backed street violence which peaked through June – October 2010.

Total fatalities in India's Northeast fell dramatically to 322 in 2010, from 853 in 2009, and 1,051 in 2008. Manipur and Assam saw the most significant improvements in this long-troubled region, with fatalities dropping from 416 and 391, respectively, in 2009, to 138 and 158 in 2010.

Very significantly, Pakistan-backed Islamist terrorist attacks across the country, outside J&K, registered a low, albeit marginally rising, incidence, after their peak in 2008. There were 25 fatalities in Islamist terrorist attacks across the country, with the worst incident recording 17 killed and at least 60 injured in the explosion at the German Bakery in Pune on February 13, 2010. 2009 had recorded no major incident (involving three or more fatalities), and a total of eight deaths in such attacks. 378 persons were killed in 2008 in Islamist terrorist attacks outside J&K, with the Pakistan-backed 26/11 Mumbai attack alone recording 166 fatalities.

Traditionally BJP and RSS have always been equated as Right wing, communist as left and the congress would like to be called a centrist party, but usually flits to the two ends- usually more to the right.

So when you say right wing terror then it is always the H word.

i dont think so...there are many left wing hindus also.

right wing ≠ hindu.

right wing/left wing is political and economic stance rather than religious.

I think term 'Saffron Terror' was coined by Chidambaram. IMO its pretty idiotic to go out calling saffron terror or green terror.

Ideological bent is mapped on that good old graph, hence islamist jihadis or nasty thekedars of hinduism should be plotted as right wing terrorists.

Terrorism has no religion though.

I wouldn't really say "traditionally".

More like, the Congress party has bastardized the terms "right wing" and "left wing", just as they have bastardized the terms "secularism" and "communalism".

Infact, the Congress party has been one of the biggest obstacles to secularism, and now they have the BJP to give them a hand. :rolleyes:
