ATS officials should undergo narco-tests: MalhotraNovember 24th, 2008 - 5:44 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Nov 24 (IANS) Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) chief ministerial candidate for the Delhi assembly polls V.K. Malhotra Monday demanded that the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) of the Mumbai Police investigating the Malegaon bomb blasts should also undergo narco-analysis tests.”Hindu bashing is Congress’s way. ATS keeps on leaking information every now and then. All the ATS officials should also undergo narco tests,” Malhotra told reporters at a press conference here.
Media reports had recently quoted ATS sources as alleging that army officer Lt Col Prasad Purohit disclosed during interrogation that Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) general secretary Pravin Togadia was involved in the funding of Abhinav Bharat.
Abhinav Bharat is the radical Hindu outfit at the centre of the probe into the Sep 29 Malegaon blasts.
“By narco tests of ATS officers, it would become clear who is behind them and on whose directions they are working,” Malhotra stated.
“The whole world is saying that Pakistan and Bangladesh are the epicentre of terrorism. But by Hindu bashing, they are trying to divert attention,” Malhotra further said.
