New Delhi: The verdict of the serial blasts that occurred in Patna in 2013 at a BJP rally is likely to be pronounced by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) today. The serial bomb blasts which killed about 6 people and injured over 90 people had taken place at Narendra Modi's 'Hunkar' rally during his prime ministerial campaign.

The incident took place on October 27, 2013.

The case was then handed over to the National Investigation Agency on November 6, 2013. After a thorough investigation, a charge sheet was filed against 11 accused on August 21, 2014.

According to the accused, the bomb had been planted in the rally after their plans to get closer to Modi had been foiled during his earlier rallies that were held in Uttar Pradesh, Chattisgarh and Delhi.

The accused in the case were revealed to be nine Indian Mujahideen (IM) suspects and a Students' Islamic Movement of India (SIMI). The names of the accused are Numan Ansari, Haidar Ali alias 'Black Beauty', Mohammed Mujibullah Ansari, Umar Siddiqui, Azharuddin Qureshi, Ahmed Hussain, Faqruddin, Mohammed Iftekhar Alam, and a minor whose identity has not been disclosed.

One of the accused identified as Tariq Ansari had reportedly died while trying to plant a bomb at a public toilet in the capital city of Bihar. The accused are presently lodged at a jail in Patna.

On October 12, 2017, the minor was found guilty of being involved in multiple bomb blasts and was later sentenced to three years by the Judicial Justice Board.
