Purohit plotted to kill Indresh Kumar

New Delhi: According to Military Intelligence report, Lt. Col. Prasad Srikant Purohit (currently lodged in jail for his Abhinav Bharat terror activities) had plotted to kill Indresh Kumar for his alleged links with the ISI and for receiving fake Indian currency to the tune of Rs 21 crore from the Pak agency. Apart from Purohit several persons arrested on charge of bomb blasts have also acknowledged their association with the RSS ideologue. Denying the charge, Indresh accuses the government for playing politics with the investigation. Purohit made this revelation during his interrogation in connection with Malegaon blast of 2008. The MI report considers the blast as “a birth day gift” to his younger son, “Malegaon bomb blast coincided with birth day celebrations of Col. Purohit’s younger son. It may not be a mere coincidence.” Considering Abhinav Bharat as Purohit’s brainchild the MI report traces financial support from wealthy RSS supporters. Shyam Apte, a Pune-based staunch supporter was roped in to finance the plot to kill “ISI agent” Indresh. A fraudester ‘holy man’ Dayanand Pandey, Shankaracharya of Sharda Peeth, had joined the band wagon to make money.
