Seventh anniversary of the Samjhauta Express attack today
The seventh anniversary of the Samjhauta Express train bombing is being observed today in which 68 persons were killed.
A huge explosion occurred in the last bogies of Samjhauta Express on 18th February 2007. Flames had engulfed the bogies of the train. Passengers tried to escape the burning train but could not do so as the windows were sealed for security reasons.
Sixty-Eight persons, mostly Pakistani nationals, were killed in the bombing.
Swami Aseemanand, Chief of Hindu extremist organization Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), is said to have endorsed the attack on the Pakistan-India friendship train.
The suspects were arrested by the security forces of India which includes officers of the Indian Army.
It still remains to be seen that whether the guilty persons will be indicted in the case or not. This is a huge question mark for Indian judicial system.
