The Special CBI Judge, Mumbai, who deals with CBI cases has acquitted all accused in Sohrabudin case. More relevant than the Order of the Acquittal is the observation of the Judge that in the investigation, from the very beginning, Investigating Agency did not investigate the case professionally in order to find out the truth but to divert it towards certain political persons.
The Congress President Sh. Rahul Gandhi on the day of the judgement raised the issue “that nobody killed Sohrabudin”. It would have been more appropriate if he had asked the right question, namely who killed Sohrabudin case investigation, he would have got the right answer.
On 27th September 2013, as the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, I had written to then Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh a letter detailing the politicization of the investigation in the Sohrabudin, Tulsi Prajapati, Ishrat Jahan, Rajinder Rathore and the Haren Pandya cases. The copy of the letter is enclosed. Every word of what I have said in the letter, over the next five years, have proven to be true. This is an irrefutable evidence of what the congress did to our investigative agencies.
Those who have recently shown a belated concern for institutional independence should seriously introspect as to what they did to the CBI when they were in power.
