For more than 7 years, Lt Colonel Shrikant Purohit languished in an Indian jail on charges of being involved in the 2008 Malegaon blasts case. 
 
But documents accessed by NewsX paint a very different picture of Purohit, wherein he emerges not as a terrorist mastermind but as an over-zealous Intelligence officer. 
 
NewsX has documents that show how he was appreciated on multiple occasions for his integrity, his tenacity and his hard work by his seniors. For the defence forces he was an achiever.
