Panchkula (Haryana), July 18 (IBNS) Swami Aseemanand who was allegedly involved in the 2007 Samjhauta Express blast, on Monday told a local court that he was made to take the 'blame' on himself under the pressure of National Investigation Agency (NIA).
"I was forced by the NIA to confess that I was involved in the blast. I am not involved in the case. The proof against me is also fabricated by the NIA," Aseemanand told reporters outside the special court after the hearing.
Meanwhile, the NIA, submitting 'deficient documents' in the case, told the court that it will file a supplementary chargesheet against some other accused soon.
The Additional District and Sessions Judge Kanchan Mahi will hear the case next on August 17.
Aseemanand, according to a media expose earlier, had said it's not Muslims, but Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) 'pracharaks' (activists), who planned and executed the bomb blasts at Malegaon in 2006 and 2008, on the Samjhauta Express in 2007, in Ajmer Sharif in 2007 and Mecca Masjid in 2007.
