Abhinav Bharat (AB) President Himani Savarkar on Friday said Maharashtra ATS’ contention that the Malegaon blast conspiracy was discussed in her presence by Lt Col Prasad Purohit in April 2008 in Bhopal,was a “pack of lies”.
Savarkar,who was questioned by ATS here last month,has been reportedly quoted in the chargesheet against the Malegaon accused as saying that she walked out of a closed door meeting attended by AB members as she was opposed to violent methods.
The ATS was making “misleading” statements based on her questioning,she said.
“When I was speaking it was being recorded on a computer. But I was not shown the contents of my statement and I never signed it,” she added.
Savarkar said she had attended only an ‘Aamsabha’ (general meeting of AB in Bhopal) and not any closed door conclave which allegedly discussed use of RDX by the accused in Malegaon.
The ATS has not made Savarkar an accused in the case,citing her as a witness in the chargesheet.
