Ishrat Jahan case: 'Truth must come out', says Bhakta Charan Das

New Delhi, June 30 (ANI): With the Union Home Ministry expressing doubts over CBI's proof against senior Intelligence Bureau (IB) official in the Ishrat Jahan encounter case, Congress spokesperson Bhakta Charan Das on Sunday said the truth on this issue must come out.

"The truth must come to the people," Das said.

According to certain media reports, the Home Ministry is not convinced that the CBI has evidence to arrest or prosecute a top Intelligence Bureau officer in the conspiracy to carry out the fake encounter in which Ishrat Jahan and three others were killed in Gujarat nine years ago.

The CBI had earlier this month grilled Intelligence Bureau Special Director Rajinder Kumar on his alleged role in the conspiracy to carry out the fake encounter in which Ishrat Jahan and three others were killed nine years ago.

19-year-old Ishrat Jahan was killed along with three others on June 15, 2004 allegedly by a team of Crime Branch officials on the outskirts of Ahmedabad.

The CBI investigating the case on the directive of the Gujarat High Court wants to charge the then Ahmedabad Intelligence Bureau station chief Rajender Kumar for conspiracy to murder.

The Crime Branch had then claimed that the four were LeT members and were on a mission to kill Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. (ANI)
