HC grants bail to Ajmer blast accused

Chandrashekhar Leve, one of the accused in the 2007 Ajmer Dargah blast case has been granted bail by the Rajasthan High Court on 23 March. Chandrashekhar is the first among seven arrested in connection with the bomb blast to get bail. A single judge bench headed by Justice R S Rathore granted him bail on furnishing a bond of Rs 2 lakh. Leve was arrested by the Rajasthan Anti terrorist Squad on 1 May 2010 in connection with the 2007 terror attack. All SIM cards procured by the accused were found to be operational on Leve’s mobile handset during the blast that took place on 11 October 2007. It was argued by Basant Chabba, the counsel for the accused, that the petitioner has been chargsheeted for shielding the offenders by destroying the evidence. However, he argued that the accusations need to be proved in a court of law.
