New Delhi, Oct 14: The National Investigation Agency is consulting with its legal team to counter the statement made in an affidavit accusing one of its officers of telling special public prosecutor, Rohini Salian to go slow in the Malegaon blasts case.

An officer with the NIA informed OneIndia that the statements made by Rohini Salian are completely false. We will contest that claim and are currently speaking with our legal team on how to go about it, the officer further informed.

NIA prepares strong response to Rohini Salian's allegation on Malegaon blast probe.
Rohini Salian in an affidavit submitted to the Bombay High Court had named Superintendent of Police (NIA). She said that he had told her to glow slow on the Malegaon case while she was arguing it in the capacity as a special public prosecutor.

Counter in Bombay High Court:

The NIA official said that no officer had approached Rohini Salian and asked her to go slow in the case. We have submitted this before the Supreme Court which is hearing a petition seeking a fair trial into the Malegaon blasts case.

The NIA will submit a similar reply before the Bombay High Court. The allegations made by Rohini Salian were examined by the Director General of the NIA, Sharad Kumar in detail. It was clearly found that there was no interference from any of the officers in the NIA.

When the matter was heard in the Supreme Court recently, Attorney General Mukul Rohtagi had said that the allegations made by Rohini Salian were baseless. The NIA will quote the same submissions when it counters the affidavit in the Bombay High Court.
