14 years after 59 Kar Sevaks were charred to death in coach S6 of Sabarmati Express, a man has been arrested, Faruk Bhana. Gujarat Crime Branch ACP says Bhana was a key figure in the conspiracy to kill the Kar Sevaks.
It is worth recalling here while the Nanavati Commission had established the conspiracy theory, the UC Banerjee committee formed by the then Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav had negated it.
Nonetheless, even before investigations could proceed, the Congress party has questioned the delay in the arrest while a Muslim cleric is crying foul. The government on its part says those responsible for destroying the social fabric of the country must be exposed.
