Patiala, May 1 (PTI) A court here today acquitted Khalistan Tiger Force terrorist Ramandeep Singh Goldy in a blast case of 2010 due to lack of evidence.
Additional Sessions Judge Ravideep Singh Hundal granted him the reprieve after the prosecution could not convince the court why the eyewitnesses took so long to record their statements, defence lawyer B S Sodhi said.
On April 20, 2010, the blast rocked the Arya Samaj area – a busy market place in interior Patiala city – near the popular Satyanarayan Mandir. Seven persons, including two policemen, were injured in the blast.
Goldy was arrested by Punjab Police from Malaysia in 2014.
All the other accused were also acquitted earlier.
