CBI is Congress Bureau of of Investigation, says BJPMarch 28th, 2009 - 6:54 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, March 28 (IANS) Suspecting a clean chit to former central minister Jagdish Tytler in a 1984 anti-Sikh riot case, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Saturday said the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has turned into a ‘Congress Bureau of Investigation’.
“The CBI has continued the Congress’s political agenda by giving a clean chit to Jagdish Tytler. We have not seen such a misuse of CBI till date,” BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar told reporters here.
“If Mayawati is with them, then a clean chit to Mayawati. If Mulyaam Singh Yadav is with them, then a clean chit to him. And now a clean chit to Jagdish Tytler. The CBI is now Congress Bureau of Investigation. We reject the CBI’s clean chit. Now the people will decide,” Javadekar said.
The CBI Saturday submitted its report to a city court on its investigation into Tytler’s alleged role in a case of inciting a mob to attack a group of Sikhs.
Asked about the reported clean chit to Tytler, a CBI spokesperson told IANS: “We have submitted the report into the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case in a sealed cover. Neither the court nor I know anything about what is in the report.”
The CBI had earlier told the court it had examined California-based witness Jasbir Singh in the case. Initially, the agency had expressed reservations over going to the US to record his statement and issued notice to him to come to India to depose in the case.
In an affidavit before the Nanavati Commission, the witness stated that on Nov 3, 1984, he had overheard Tytler rebuking his men for ‘nominal killing’ of Sikhs in his constituency.
Javadekar said the clean chit to Tytler was like rubbing salt on the wounds of the 1984 riot victims.
