Panchkula, March 11: A special National Investigation Court in Haryana’s Panchkula on Monday reserved its order in 2007 Samjhauta Express blast case for March 14.

The NIA court had framed charges against Hindu leader Swami Aseemanand and three others – Kamal Chauhan, Rajinder Chaudhary and Lokesh Sharma in January 2014.

On February 18, 2007, an explosion in the Samjhauta Express that connects India and Pakistan claimed lives of 68 people.

The incident took place at Diwani village near the industrial town of Panipat, 160 kilometres from here, in Haryana, when it was going towards Attari, the last station on the Indian side.

Aseemanand, who is a member of the right-wing Hindu group Abhinav Bharat, was alleged to be involved in the bombing.

Lokesh Sharma, Sunil Joshi, Sandeep Dange and Ramchandra Kalasangra were also named in the NIA charge sheet.
