Hyderabad: Swami Aseemanand, a saffron-robed monk who has been linked to three terror attacks, was among the five accused acquitted today in the 2007 blast in Hyderabad's Mecca Masjid, in which nine people were killed. A court said the country's top anti-terror body, the National Investigation Agency (NIA), had failed to prove anyone's guilt. On May 18 that year, over 50 were also injured when the blast ripped through the historic mosque during Friday prayers. The NIA took over the case from the CBI in 2011.
