NEW DELHI 27 Dec 2012(TOI): Even though the Hindu terror module responsible for several blasts from Samjhauta Express to Malegaon was allegedly stitched up under the aegis of organizations such as Abhinav Bharat, Jai Maa Vande Mataram and support from certain RSS functionaries to avenge Hindu deaths in terror attacks, the order to shoot dead Syed Abdul Rehman Geelani did not flow from the top.

It was something that Samjhauta blast accused Lokesh Sharma and Rajender Chadhary, recently arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA), decided on their own in consultation with slain Hindu terror suspect Sunil Joshi, sources said.
