New Delhi, Oct 17: Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a rally in Akola on Wednesday said that it would soon be clear who had helped the perpetrators of the 1993 Mumbai blasts flee and take shelter in "enemy territory".


This comes amidst the backdrop of the Enforcement Directorate issuing a notice to Sharad Pawar confidant Praful Patel for an alleged financial deal between a company promoted by his family and the kin of Dawood Ibrahim aide Iqbal Memon "Mirchi," 


Dawood, Tiger Memon and other key accused in the case fled to Pakistan soon after the serial blasts. The opposition at the time had accused the then Pawar-led Maharashtra government of being hand-in-glove with the underworld, a charge denied by Pawar and his associates.

"Do you remember the blasts that took place in Maharashtra and especially in Mumbai in trains, in buses, and in buildings? The perpetrators of the massacre fled and took shelter in enemy territory," PM Modi asked the gathering.



"People have been asking how this happened. A new chapter will reveal who helped these perpetrators to flee and what their relations with the perpetrators were, business, commercial or otherwise," PM said. 



PM Modi launched a scathing attack against the opposition, and described the Congress-NCP pact as "bhrashtawadi" (corrupt) and blamed it for pushing the state back by decades due to its corrupt practices.
