The application moved by the state government was rejected by special Sessions Judge Kalpana Mishra recently. The suspected HuJI operatives are Tariq Kasmi and Khalid Mujahid

Accused in the 2007 Gorakhpur bomb blasts, which left six injured, the state government sought withdrawal of cases in “public interest and for the sake of communal harmony.”

The court noted that the government did not file an affidavit along with the application. The court also stated that the government had not detailed how the withdrawal of cases would serve public interest and communal harmony.
