New Delhi – In 2013, under the rule of the Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh, 14 cases concerned with terrorist attacks in 7 districts were withdrawn. The Court refused to withdraw some cases back. In this matter, the accused were declared guilty and were punished for up to 20 years. BJP has accused the Samajwadi Party of showing sympathy to the terrorists.
