What was the matter
On March 7, 2006, a series of explosions rocked the Sankat Mochan Temple and Kent Railway Station in Varanasi. Eighteen people were killed and more than 35 were injured. The same evening, explosives were also recovered from Dashaswamedh Ghat. On April 5, 2006, police arrested Waliullah, a resident of Phulpur village in Allahabad, from the Gosai Ganj area of Lucknow. Varanasi’s lawyers had refused to fight his case. The High Court then transferred the case to the Ghaziabad District Judge’s Court. The case has been pending in the Ghaziabad District Judge’s Court since then.
