On nation at 9 last night, former UPA top babu GK Pillai, who reported to the then union home minister P Chidambaram said that Ishrat Jahan was linked to the LeT.
He also added that the operation to neutralise the terror module to which she belonged was good. His claim raised serious doubts about the veracity of the charges against BJP leaders and policemen implicated in what was described as a fake encounter.
After this disclosure, the BJP raised this issue in the parliament, demanding a discussion. The Congress hits back questioning the timing of the disclosure. Unfortunately for the Congress, the matter has not blown over because NewsX interviewed the former IB chief of Gujarat who has claimed that a senior Congress politician from Gujarat had meddled in the probe.
