The court was due to announce the verdict on February 25 but had postponed it to March 8.As per the NIA chargesheet, some fringe Hindu groups were responsible for conducting the blasts and it had accused Swami Aseemanand, Devendra Gupta, Chandrashekhar Leve, Mukesh Vasani, Bharat Mohan Rateshwar, Lokesh Sharma and Harshad Solanki of planting and exploding bombs and murder among other charges.
