After 9 years, Malegaon blast accused Purohit walks out of jail
Raigad (Maharashtra): After remaining in jail for nine years, Lt. Col. Prasad S. Purohit -- one of the prime accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast -- walked out of the Taloja prison here on Wednesday.
He was granted bail by the Supreme Court on Monday. Purohit is accused of being a part of the conspiracy hatched for carrying out the September 29, 2008 blast in Malegaon, a Muslim-dominated town in Nashik district.
Seven persons were killed and scores injured in the blast, considered the handiwork of a right-wing group, Abhinav Bharat.
Purohit was escorted by an army team as he stepped out of the prison and left for an army unit in Mumbai.
