Acquittal of accused in 2008 bomb blasts shameful, says State BJP president CP Joshi
Jaipur: Rajasthan BJP state president CP Joshi on Wednesday targeted the Congress dispensation over the acquittal of the accused in the Jaipur serial bomb blasts case, saying it is shameful and the release of the terrorists will cost the government.
The Rajasthan High Court recently acquitted all four men accused in the case, overturning a lower court’s verdict. The trial court had sentenced all four to death in 2019. Seventy-one people were killed and over 180 injured in a series of eight bomb blasts in Jaipur on May 13, 2008.
Speaking to reporters at the BJP headquarters here, Joshi said, “The 2008 Jaipur bomb blasts were very unfortunate. To save itself, the Congress government hires big lawyers of Rajasthan by paying huge amounts of money, but the government does not care at all about the 71 people killed in the Jaipur blast.”
“The release of such terrorists due to weak lobbying is a very shameful matter for the Cong Govt,” he said.
