A special National Investigation Agency (NIA) court in Hyderabad on Monday acquitted five accused, including Swami Aseemanand, in the 2007 Mecca Masjid blast case. Verdict came almost eleven years ago, a pipe bomb ripped through the Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad, killing eight people and injuring 58 others. Of the eight people who were charge sheeted, Swami Aseemanand and Bharat Mohanlal Ratneshwar aka Bharat Bhai were out on bail, and three people are still in jail. The attack occurred on 18 May, 2007. Meanwhile, two other accused in the case, Sandeep V Dange and Ramchandra Kalsangra, are now missing.

Investigation against another two from the same State, Tejram Parmar and Amith Chowhan, is still continuing.

However, the major twist in the case came in 2010, when Aseemanand, apparently moved by the plight of framed, innocent Muslim men, made a decision to come clean about the role of Hindu extremists in the blast. Two live IEDs were also recovered by police and defused. Subsequently, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) took over the case in 2011.

The powerful blast at the Hyderabad's landmark mosque in the Old City killed 9 people and injured 58 who were offering Friday namaz on May 18, 2007, including 5 people who died in the firing by police to control the mob violence after the blast.
