On April 16, Ravindra Reddy tendered his resignation citing 'personal reasons'.
Earlier in the day, he had acquitted all prime accused, including Swami Aseemanand in the high-profile case. Pronouncing his verdict, Reddy said the prosecution wasn't able to build a strong case, or produce evidence.
The blast in Mecca Masjid, Hyderabad on May 18, 2007, had killed 9 people and left around 60 injured.
According to judicial officer, Reddy's resignation was pre-decided
After Reddy's suspicious resignation, a senior judicial officer told PTI that he had decided to put down his papers some time ago. He said, "It (resignation) has nothing to do with today's verdict in the Mecca Masjid blast case."
However, AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi raised concerns over it and took to Twitter to give his opinion on the matter.
