Draft Note Recording Changes in Ishrat Jahan Affidavit Missing
A draft note recording the changes in the Ishrat Jahan affidavit, is not traceable in the home ministry files.
A draft note recording the changes in the Ishrat Jahan affidavit during former home minister P Chidambaram’s tenure, that also had the attorney general’s legal notes tendered, is not traceable in the home ministry files, according to The Times of India.
The record pertains to the UPA government’s controversial decision in 2009 to virtually disown its affidavit submitted to the Gujarat high court in which it had stated that Ishrat and three others killed in a 2004 encounter were linked to the Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Meanwhile, the NDA government is expected to take up the Ishrat Jahan case in the Lok Sabha on Thursday in response to a calling attention motion.
