However, it refers to the Samjauta Express tragedy
The Congress on Monday distanced itself from the party general secretary Digvijay Singh's remarks on the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS), which he accused of making bombs and, possibly, being involved in last week's explosions in Mumbai. Party spokesperson Manish Tewari said, “It would be better if you ask him.”

However, Mr. Tewari chose to refer to the Samjauta Express tragedy, for which Hindu terror groups have been held responsible. “I would definitely like to underscore that the Samjhauta Express .. is a case in point where the involvement of certain individuals and certain organisations which have upward linkages have now been established through the investigative process.”

Probe needed

On the death of a blast suspect in police custody in Mumbai, Mr. Tewari said, “What happened with regard to the person who died in the police custody is most unfortunate. I think it should be properly investigated and if at all there is a custodial torture angle to it, which the Mumbai police are disclaiming, then all those who are responsible must be brought to book.”
