Home Ministry to decide:

The committee is unlikely to suggest action against anyone. It will report that the papers have not been traceable. It is now up to the Home Ministry to take a final call on the matter.

The ministry will study the report and then decide on the next course of action.

The committee had recorded the statements of several officials including that of Dharmendra Singh who was part of the internal security division between 2007 and 2009.

The affidavit in which the narrative changed was submitted to the Gujarat High Court in 2009.

The committee had also attempted contacting several officers. However it was unable to reach many of them. Sources say that it would require a probe by an investigating agency to find out how the papers went missing.

It is unclear where exactly the papers are, but there is a good chance that it may have been destroyed sources also say.
