Digvijay says he will release phone talk with Karkare

Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Monday promised to release proof of his telephonic conversation with slain ATS chief Hemant Karkare hours before he was killed in Mumbai terror attacks.



New Delhi: After questions were raised over
his claim, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Monday
promised to release proof of his telephonic conversation with
slain ATS chief Hemant Karkare hours before he was killed in
Mumbai terror attacks.

Singh has called a press conference here on Tuesday
saying he would release the record of the phone call Karkare
made to him on that fateful day.

"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", Singh told reporters at the AICC
headquarters.

When asked as to 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.

Last month,Digvijay had created a flutter by claiming
that that Karkare had spoken about threats from right-wing
groups during a telephonic conversation with him hours before
he was killed.

He, however, subsequently clarified that he never
doubted the role of Pakistani elements in the Mumbai attacks.

Congress had then distanced itself from Digvijay`s
statement, saying the matter was "a conversation between two
individuals".

Raising doubts over his claims, Maharashtra Home
minister R R Patil had then said there was no existence of any
record of the purported telephonic conversation between the
Congress leader and Karkare.
