District judge Vinod Goel said Dwivedi and three other Ananda Marga group members accused in the case– Santoshananda Avadhuta, Sudevananda Avadhuta and Gopalji — had conspired to explode a bomb at the January 2, 1975 function attended by Mishra at Samastipur railway station.

Over 200 witnesses, including 161 prosecution witnesses and more than 40 defence witnesses, were examined in the case.
