|Was Ishrat Jahan a terrorist? A question that even the CBI failed to answer in its 1500 page chargesheet, despite corroborating that the 19-year-old was killed in a fake encounter. An intelligence report of 2010 claimed terrorist David Headley named Ishrat in his interrogation but till date there has been no confirmation about Ishrat's alleged terror link, but theories are still afloat. And seeking to put an end to all the speculations, Congress Gen Secy Digvijaya Singh now wants MHA to clarify on the matter. An IB note written to CBI in February early this year once again reiterated the mention of Ishrat's name in Headley's confession. However, the NIA never clearly corroborated the account. Nevertheless the BJP is quick to capitalise on the opportunity & build their defense around Ishrat's alleged terror link, even accusing the NIA of tampering with its initial report on the case. The Congress on its part, unwilling to let the opposition digress from the prime concern, the involvement of the top political bosses in the cold blooded killing of 4 people. But is it merely a political move, even the CBI is unwilling to give a clearer picture. As the wait for the official version continues, the political fight intensifies. Isn't it time for the government to end this secrecy once and for all?|
