Centre against any encounter
Frankfurt (Germany), Sep.24 (ANI): Defending the Intelligence Bureau on the inputs that it had provided to the Gujarat Government over the encounter case that led to the death of Ishrat Jahan and three others, a top government source revealed that intelligence inputs are provided to states but do not suggest action.
The authoritative source also said that the Centre respects human values and is not only against the fake encounters but against any encounter.
The blame game between the Centre and the Gujarat Government over the fake encounter of a 19-year-old Gujarat college girl Ishrat Jahan and three others does not appear to be ending. While the Gujarat Government claims that its police officials acted on inputs provided by the Union Home Ministry which dubbed the four as Lashkar operatives, the Centre maintains that it only provided inputs which were not actionable.
Home Minister P. Chidambaram told journalists of an English daily that the Centre is now planning to revise the affidavit in which it had admitted to having passed on information to the Gujarat state police on the terror links of the four victims.
"The affidavit would have been 'different' if he had got an opportunity to see it before it was filed last month," said Chidambaram. By Naveen Kapoor (ANI)
