via PNS | New Delhi published on May 3, 2010

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Monday demanded a “proper investigation” into the role of those accused of involvement in the Ajmer blast and action against the guilty. However, the Sangh also cautioned that “innocent” persons should not be harassed.

Following a Rajasthan Minister’s allegation about the involvement of an RSS man in the Ajmer blast, the Sangh came out with a clarification on Monday, condemning attempts to spread rumours through some newspaper reports.

“RSS always has faith in the Constitution. Sangh will neither empathies with nor patronise illegal and violent activities,” said Sangh general secretary Suresh Soni.

Without naming Devendra Gupta, the RSS leader said the “accused individual” in this incident has been “relieved of all responsibilities with immediate effect” by concerned regional office holders of the Sangh.

“Having faith in the impartiality of the investigations (into the Ajmer blast), Sangh office-bearers of the concerned region has announced that the accused person has been relieved of all responsibilities with immediate effect,” Soni said.

The Sangh and BJP leaders have maintained that Devendra Gupta, arrested by Rajasthan ATS in the Ajmer blast, had presently no links with the RSS. BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu denied that his party was reluctant to condemn the Ajmer and Malegaon blasts, in which Hindu rightwing activists were accused.
