We are RSS workers, not ashamed about it: Arrested man’s brother

    • Bhopal:
    • Chandrashekhar Patidar, arrested by the Rajasthan ATS in Madhya Pradesh in connection with the October 2007 Ajmer dargah bombing, is an active RSS worker, says his brother.


      “Why should we be ashamed of our association with an organisation that works in the national interest,” Chandrashekhar’s elder brother Satish told The Sunday Express. Satish confirmed that both Chandrashekhar, 38, and he have been associated for long with the RSS.


      Chandrashekhar, who has a polytechnic diploma, has helped to manage an RSS-run Saraswati Shishu Mandir school in Khopra Kalan village in the past.

    • Chandrashekhar’s brother Satish claimed that Chandrashekhar’s brother-in-law Pankaj Patidar had brought the two mobile phone handsets from Bhopal. But Pankaj died in a road mishap last year, and the chances of tracing the handsets to their source were very slim.


      “We are not sure where Pankaj got the handsets from. The police are torturing us because they have no other evidence and they don’t know the source of these handsets,” Satish alleged.


      Chandrashekhar’s wife was using one of the handsets. Vishnu had given the other to an employee who worked in his fields.


      Satish said his brother had even fled to Allahabad to escape questioning by the police. He claimed Vishnu had gone into a depression after sustained questioning by the Rajasthan team, and was treated for months in Indore.
