Former special director of Intelligence Bureau (IB) Rajinder Kumar said on Saturday that there was a conspiracy hatched by a senior Congress leader to frame the then Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi in the Ishrat Jahan alleged fake encounter case.

He felt short of mentioning the name but said that he is a Gujarat-based leader who wanted to taint the image of Modi because he was emerging as one of the powerful forces and posing a threat to the UPA government.

Detailed affidavit was filed by MHA on 6 August 2009 which proved that inputs provided by IB were all correct. After that affidavit, some people got disgruntled and pressurised witnesses.

The leader “was giving instructions to the people with an aim to somehow prove that the affidavit of the MHA is proven wrong. He, along with some of the disgruntled police officers, did all this,” said Kumar.

The main conspirator in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, David Coleman Headley through a video-link from the US said that Ishrat Jahan was a Lashkar-e-Taiba agent.
