New Delhi: Home Minister P Chidambaram
on Thursday attacked the BJP for its "monumental ignorance" in
blaming him for CBI`s lapse in going with an expired warrant
seeking extradition of Purulia arms drop case accused Kim
Davy.

"By issuing a statement blaming the Home Minister for
an alleged discrepancy in the arrest warrant taken by the CBI
to apprehend Kim Davy, the BJP spokesperson has displayed
monumental ignorance," he said.

Chidambaram was reacting to BJP spokesperson Nirmala
Seetharaman`s statement, which held the Home Minister
responsible for the CBI goof-up up and that his ministry was
moving from one "human error" to another.

The Home minister said he would like the BJP
spokesperson to check facts before making sweeping
allegations.

He said the BJP spokesperson should know that CBI is
not not under the administrative control of the MHA and the
ministry concerned is Department of Personnel and Training.
