A special court of National Investigation Agency (NIA) in Panchkula, Haryana, has acquitted all four accused in the 2007 Samjhauta Express blast case.

The court on Wednesday said no evidence was found against Swamy Aseemananda, Lokesh Sharma, Kamal Chauhan and Rajinder Chudhary in the 12-year old case.

The case refers to the explosions on Samjhauta Express killing 68 people in Panipat district in February 2007.

The court had reserved its order on March 11, 2019, as a last-minute application was moved by a Pakistani national, claiming to have enough evidence against the accused.

However, the court dismissed the application as it didn’t find any evidence in it, before delivering the final verdict acquitting the accused.
