Bombay high court questioned NIA
On December 14, the Bombay high court had asked how the findings of the NIA, which had absolved nine Muslim men in its charge sheet and instead named four members of a Hindu extremist organisation in the 2006 Malegaon blasts case, were so different from those of the CBI and Maharashtra ATS.
11 people were arrested
In November 2008, the Anti-Terrorism Squad arrested 11 people in this connection.
