Ishrat Jahan case: CBI seeks to examine NIA sleuths who interrogated Headley
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: A team of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is investigating the Ishrat Jahan encounter case, wants to examine three officers of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) who had recorded 26/11 Mumbai attacks suspect David Coleman Headley’s statement in the US in 2010.
The CBI move comes in the wake of claims that Headley had reportedly told NIA officers that Ishrat was an operative of the Lashkar-e-Toiba. Headley reportedly admitted that this information was given to him by none other than LeT commander Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi.
Officially, the NIA in its report submitted to the Home Ministry had stated that Headley did not name Ishrat.
As per the understanding with the US where Headley is jailed, NIA cannot use the evidence collected in the 26/11 probe in any other case.
The CBI is preparing to even move court if it is not given permission to examine NIA officers.
The three-member NIA team was led by IG Loknath Behera who was earlier with the CBI.
