Ishrat encounter case: Register an FIR against Chidambaram for tampering evidence – Dr. Swamy

published on July 8, 2013


Statement of Dr. Subramanian Swamy, President of the  Janata Party and fmr. Union Minister for Commerce & Law.

            I demand that the CBI register an FIR naming Mr. P. Chidambaram, presently Union Minister of Finance,  for having directed the preparation and tampering of evidence in what is now known as Ishrat Jahan Encounter Case,  for which a charge-sheet has been filed by the CBI in the Special  Court against some officials.  I have confirmed from my sources   that the US Federal Bureau of Investigation had provided evidence to the  Government of India that an agent of terrorists, a Pakistani based in Chicago USA,  Mr. David Coleman Headley had during the questioning by FBI  said  Ishrat Jahan had volunteered to be a suicide bomber for payment,  but before she could be, the police in India had killed her along with three of her associates {having connections with  Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT)}.  However,  this document submitted by FBI, and the Report of Indian interrogaters of Headley,  was vetted by Mr. Chidambaram as Home Minister and either in complicity with certain officials  or otherwise the document was €œsanitized€ to delete the references to Ishrat Jahan.

            I warn the CBI that if they fail to come up with a clear explanation as to why the revelation of Headley about Ishrat Jahan is missing in the CBI charge-sheet, then, I would be entitled to intervene in the trial when the matter comes up for framing of charges  by the Special Court.  Or alternatively, the CBI should seek withdrawal of the entire Encounter Case.
