SIT Chief said  that Sameer and his entire family is associated with the Sanatan Sanstha. He has been the Full timer of this organization from 1998. He has told Police that his wife is presently at Sanstha’s ashram in Goa. Mr. Kumar refused to divulge more details of his wife saying she is not an accused.

Sanatan Sanstha has been in controversy for its extreme right wing ideology and was on radar from last two years, after the murder of Rationalist Narendra Dabholkar in Pune. Activists of this organisation have also been arrested for their role in a blast in Thane’s Gadkari theatre. Its members were also arrested in another blast case in Madgaon, Goa.

He said that the accused does not have a previous police record. He however refused to link the arrest with the ongoing investigation in the murder of noted Kannada progressive thinker, writer and scholar M. M. Kalburgi in Dharwad, who was shot dead last month, or with that of Narendra Dabholkar.
