BJP leaders said that Digvijay was trying to pull out the attention from Congress scams. BJP also added that by commenting over Karkare's death, Digvijay has given a wrong signal.
BJP leaders said, Digvijay's comments were unfortunate and will give a leverage to the Pakistan terrorists.
Earlier on Saturday, Dec 11, Digvijay Singh told that ATS Chief Hemant Karkare had called him hours before his death in the terrorist shoot-out. He also claimed that Hemant Karkare was under threat by those opposing the Malegaon blast probe.
Thirty seven people were killed and 125 people injured in a bomb blast on Sep 29, 2008, at Malegaon, a communally-sensitive textile town in Nasik district of North Maharashtra. The probe into the blast has brought into focus some right-wing Hindu groups.
