In its judgment, the Hyderabad court has observed that since the accused Swami Aseemanand has been acquitted in the 2011 Ajmer blast case, the court is inclined to give him conditional bail. The conditions set forth by the court require Aseemanand to submit his passport in court and not to leave the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. It may be recalled that Swami Aseemanand had filed for a bail in the Hyderabad court after being acquitted in the Ajmer blast case last month. It was mentioned in his bail application that he has already spent seven years in jail, which was adversely affecting his health.
The bail application also mentions that there was no legally reliable evidence to be found against Aseemanand. The application states that Aseemanand has already retracted the fabricated extra judicial confession and the alleged statement under section 164 of Criminal procedure Code (CrPC). It may be recalled that nine people were killed in the Mecca Masjid blast that occurred on May 18, 2007. Aseemanand was among the eight accused in the case and he was the only one behind bars. Four other accused had already secured bail, two were absconding and one had died during the course of trial.
