Another witness turned hostile in Samjhauta blasts case which is going on in the National Investigation Agency (NIA) special court, Panchkula, on Friday.

The blasts had taken place on February 18, 2007, near Panipat, killing 68 people, mostly Pakistanis.

"Kavita, wife of Bharat Bhai, an accused in Ajmer blasts case, was to depose about relationship between Bharat Bhai and prime accused Aseemanand. She told the court that there was no relationship between her husband and Aseemanand," informed Manbir Singh Rathi, counsel for Aseemanand.

She also added that they were followers of Vivekanand and follow his ideals.

Kavita is the fourth witness to have turned hostile in the case. On May 30 too, three witnesses -- Bharat Mohan Lal alias Bharat Bhai, Vasudev Parmal and Sheetal Gehlot --recorded their statements in the NIA court in Panchkula and turned hostile.

They refuted the NIA claim that they were members of Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS). However, they had earlier revealed some inputs about the accused and claimed knowledge about the blasts.
