via PTI published on June 11, 2007

 CHENNAI: A designated TADA court on Monday once again put off the verdict in the 1993 case involving a bomb blast which killed 11 people at the RSS office here and fixed June 21 as the date of delivery of judgement.

When the case came up for pronouncing final orders, Judge T Ramasamy said the judgement was not ready and it could be delivered only on June 21.

On April 18, the judge had reserved orders in the case and fixed May 9 as date for delivering the verdict. However, the judgement was not ready that day and was posted for today.

In all, 18 people, including leader of the banned Al Umma outfit S A Basha, have been named as accused in the case.

Two other prominent persons listed as accused were Imam Ali, a suspected ISI agent who had escaped from custody in Madurai and gunned down in Bangalore in an encounter with the police on September 29, 2002, and Jihad Committee Founder President Palani Baba, who was hacked to death by suspected RSS sympathisers on January 28, 1997.

The CBI was entrusted with the investigation after it was found that RDX had been used to blast the state RSS headquarters building on August 8, 1993.

While seven are out on bail, one person Mustaq Ahmed is absconding.

Of the 431 cited as witnesses, 224 were examined during the course of the trial which commenced on August 7, 1995. The chargesheet was filed on June 8, 1994.
