"My allegation is that when these people were absconding, senior BJP leaders in Madhya Pradesh provided them shelter and monetary help. We want the whole case to be exposed after a proper probe," Digvijay Singh said in Indore.

Digvijay Singh did not name the MP leaders on whom he pointed fingers. However, the trio accused of the Samjhauta blast he was referring to were Ramchandra Kalsangra, Sandeep Dange and slain RSS pracharak Sunil Joshi.

68 people, mostly Pakistanis, were killed in the Samjhauta Express blast on February 17, 2007.
