Another accused Sunil Joshi died earlier. Investigations were continuing against two other accused.
A total of three chargesheets were filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the NIA in the sensational case that took many twists and turns.
Last year, Aseemanand was acquitted in the blast case related to Ajmer Dargah and got bail in the Samjhauta Express blast case of 2014.
In a dramatic development that sparked intense speculation in the legal circle, special court judge Ravinder Reddy resigned from his office within hours of delivering the verdict.
Two accused persons - Sandeep V Dange and Ramchandra Kalsangra - are still absconding. While the NIA was formed in 2009, it was only in 2011 that the Centre made a decision to shift these cases to the NIA after the arrest of Aseemanand from Haridwar on November 19, 2010, and his purported judicial confession revealing that right-wing terror groups were responsible for Ajmer, Mecca Masjid, Malegaon and Samjhauta Express blasts between 2006 and 2008. "He has sent the resignation letter to MSJ (Metropolitan Sessions Judge).he has cited personal grounds and it has nothing to do with today's verdict in the Mecca Masjid blast case", the senior judicial officer told news agency PTI. Later, five more people were killed in subsequent police firing on the crowd outside the mosque.
Hobbled Celtics expect challenge from Giannis, Bucks
But with five Celtics in double figures (and four totaling 20 points or more), Boston has more than enough to cruise. The C's offensive woes continued throughout the quarter, as they'd go finish a miserable 4-for-20 from the field.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra alleged that the Congress has long "defamed" Hindus for votes and demanded that party president Rahul Gandhi and his predecessor Sonia Gandhi apologise for using terms like "Hindu terror".
The probe agency claimed that charges had been steered towards Hindu-right-wing groups on the basis of Swami Aseemanand's confession that he along with other activists were involved in bombing of places of worship like Ajmer Sharif, Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad, etc.
The court held that none of the charges framed against the accused were proved.
Patra raked up comments of several Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi's remarks reportedly quoted in a U.S. diplomatic cable in which he had said that radicalised Hindu groups posed a bigger danger to the country. The accused were released due to lack of evidence. Without taking the name of former Union minister P Chidambaram, the advocate said Congress played politics with the case and the then Union home minister played a key role in it.
