‘Accused not linked to Sanatan Sanstha’
The state government is ready to demand a ban on Hindu right-wing organisation Sanatan Sanstha by submitting to the Centre findings of the fresh breakthrough that followed the recent arrest of some people for possession of explosives and firearms. But on Monday, the Sanstha distanced itself from the accused arrested by the investigating agencies.
“We wish to reiterate that none of these individuals are our seekers,” said Sanatan Sanstha spokesperson Chetan Rajhans.
Referring to five of the arrested accused — Sharad Kalaskar, Sachin Andure, Surale brothers and Rohit Rege — Rajhans said the Sanstha was hearing their names for the first time.
“Sanatan Sanstha is not named in any of the charge sheets filed in the cases such as the Thane and Madgaon explosions and other killings,” he said.
