New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear a plea for probe into all recent bomb blast cases by a special committee headed by its retired judge as the plea alleged that the probe agency intentionally frame Muslims in such cases.
In their Public Interest Litigation (PIL) petition, two Mumbai residents alleged there happen to be many loopholes in the probe done by various agencies in these cases and they need to be investigated by an impartial committee.
Senior Advocate Amrendra Saran and counsel Somesh Jha, appearing for the petitioners, contended the cases need to be looked into as "investigating agencies are not going to the root of real conspiracy".
"Muslims in the country are being deliberately targeted and innocent Muslim boys are being blamed for all the blast cases and arrested on fabricated and false evidence with the blasts, as revealed subsequently, being the handiwork of right -wing Hindu organisations, which are actively helped by investigating agencies, which do not go to the root of the real conspiracy," the petitioners said.
A bench headed by Justice T S Thakur, after hearing the arguments briefly, agreed to examine the issue. The petitioner Gulzar Ahmed Azmi and Sudhir Sawant, who claim to be social workers, alleged that Muslims in general perceive that their community is being targeted unfairly.
