Mumbai blasts accused was present at Shiv Sena’s (UBT) election rally: BJP

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday claimed that 1993 serial bomb blasts accused Iqbal Musa alias Baba Chauhan was seen at the election rally of Shiv Sena (UBT) Mumbai North West candidate Amol Kirtikar.

Along with Musa, Kirtikar has also denied BJP’s allegations. Both claimed that they did not know each other. BJP Maharashtra unit president Chandrakant Bawankule claimed, “Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray should be ashamed.

An accused in the Mumbai blasts is campaigning for their candidate. What would the soul of Balasaheb Thackeray be feeling? It was Balasaheb Thackeray who protected Mumbai after the 1993 blasts.

“When Uddhav Thackeray was the chief minister, the grave of Yakub Memon (who was hanged for his role in the 1993 blasts) was beautified and attempts were made to glorify Aurangzeb and Tipu Sultan,” Bawankule alleged.

Amol Kirtikar, defending himself, said that he did not know Musa personally. Kirtikar, son of sitting MP Gajanan Kirtikar, said, “If any accused is attending my rally, it is the responsibility of the state home department to stop him.”

Musa has also clarified that he was not a part of the rally and he had gone to the rally venue to meet a councilor. He said, “I don’t know Kirtikar.” I once met him for two minutes at a wedding.”

Musa claimed that he was not involved in the serial bomb blasts in Mumbai. He said, “I was accused of providing weapons to actor Sanjay Dutt. I spent 10 years in jail. I have been at home since 2016. People can say whatever they want.
