The Supreme Court Monday declined to grant bail to the 2008 Malegaon bombings accused P.S. Purohit, a lieutenant colonel of the Indian Army.
An apex court bench of Justice Markandey Katju and Justice T.S. Thakur observed that the offence was too serious. At least seven people were killed and more than 100 injured in the bomb blasts and the following stampede in Maharashtra’s Malegaon town.
