New Delhi, Jan 4: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh has called a press conference on Tuesday, Jan 3. Digvijay said he would establish the proof of his telephonic conversation with slain ATS chief Hemant Karkare, hours before he was killed in 2008, Mumbai terror attack.

“Despite the fact that the BSNL does not keep a record of telephone calls for more than a year, I have got the record after I talked to some concerned people and I will be showing it to you tomorrow," Digvijay told reporters at the AICC headquarters.

When Digvijay was asked why he has called the press conference at a different venue than the Congress headquarters, he said that this was because the party was not involved in the matter.

Digvijay claimed that ATS chief Karkare called him on 26/11 and told he was frightened by the threat calls from some people, who didn't like him probing into Malegaon bomb blast in which Hindu extremists were accused.

However, Digvijay claimed that there is no doubt, Karkare was killed by Pakistani terrorist.

Congress drifted itself from Digvijay's statement, saying the matter was "a conversation between two individuals."

Maharashtra Home minister RR Patil, raised doubt over Digvijay's statement and said, “there was no existence of any record of the purported telephonic conversation between the Congress leader and Karkare."
