Hyderabad, Apr 16  (IBNS): AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi said justice has not been done in the Mecca Masjid blast case whose verdict was pronounced by a court on Monday.

All five accused in the Mecca Masjid blast case have been acquitted owing to lack of evidence, according to media reports on Monday.

The verdict of  the 11-year old Mecca Masjid blast case was pronounced on Monday afternoon.

Owaisi tweeted: " #MMasjid Blast case verdict - Justice has not been done ,NIA & Modi govt didn’t even Appeal against Bail that was given to Accused within 90 days this was a complete biased investigation which will weaken our resolve to Fight Terrorism ,MMasjid 9 people died many injured."

Not satisfied with the verdict, he even called the NIA a 'deaf and blind parrot'.

"NIA is a deaf & blind TOTA they didn’t appeal against bail given to accused ,witness turned hostile after June 2014 IO couldn’t give proper statement so everything was done to fail the victims upshot is our fight against terrorism is weakened after Today’s acquittals

Accused Swami Aseemanand was brought to court in Hyderabad earlier in the day.

Trial in the case was concluded in the fourth additional metropolitan sessions-cum-special court for NIA cases recently.

Last week, the court had posted Apr 16 as the date for pronouncing the judgement in the case.

A blast in the Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad on May 18, 2007 had killed nine people and left 58 injured.

The CBI was handed over the case after initial investigations by local police.

The case was later handed over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in 2011.

10 people were named as accused in the case.

However, only five people, identified as Devendra Gupta, Lokesh Sharma, Swami Aseemanand alias Naba Kumar Sarkar, Bharat Mohanlal Rateshwar alias Bharat Bhai and Rajendra Chowdhary, were arrested in connection with the incident and made to face trial.

Sandeep V Dange and Ramchandra Kalsangra, who were also accused in the incident, are absconding.

Another accused Sunil Joshi died earlier.
