In a major blow to the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crimes Act court on Friday revoked the application of MCOCA in the Malegaon blast case of September 29, 2008.
He said the court’s order was in response to two bail petitions by the accused Purohit and Ajay Rahirkar.
MCOCA was applied in the case on the basis of two charge sheets against Rakesh Dattaram Dhawde, for his involvement in the Nanded and Parbhani blasts.
At the time of taking cognisance of the charges under MCOCA, Mr. Shivade held that the two charge sheets were filed after the Malegaon blast.
Secondly, cognisance on one of the charge sheets was taken after the application of MCOCA in the Malegaon case on November 20, 2008.
