In a sarcastic remark senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Thursday said that with a verdict that "no one knows" who killed 68 people, it must be a "proud day" for the criminal justice system. Sibal's comments came a day after a special court acquitted Swami Aseemanand and three others in the Samjhauta Express blast case.

Twelve years after a blast on the Samjhauta Express killed 68 people, mostly Pakistanis, a special court in Panchkula acquitted Swami Aseemanand and three others in the case on Wednesday.

“All the four accused, Naba Kumar Sarkar alias Swami Aseemanand, Lokesh Sharma, Kamal Chauhan and Rajinder Chaudhary have been acquitted by the court,” NIA counsel Rajan Malhotra had said.

Reacting to the development, Sibal tweeted: "2007 : Samjhauta Express Bomb Blast, 68 killed. NIA charged 8 accused.
"Verdict : No one knows who killed the 68 victims. Must be a proud day for our criminal justice system !"
