No permission from court, so no evidence: NIA

The National Investigation Agency (NIA), which is probing the whole Hindu terror conspiracy that involves half-a-dozen bomb blasts all over the country, is not too hopeful of getting help in terms of evidence from Swami Aseemanand’s interview.

“There are legal issues. The foremost is, without the permission of the court, nobody can interview a jail inmate,” said an NIA official requesting anonymity. “It is clear that no permission was taken from court. So it will be difficult to treat it as an extra-judicial confession.”

The BJP and the RSS claim it is a political conspiracy. BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said it was concocted by the Congress to divert attention from the AgustaWestland issue. Such allegations had been made earlier to defame the RSS leadership but they were proved wrong, said RSS spokesperson Ram Madhav.

Union minister Rajiv Shukla said the home ministry should ascertain the truth.

“Let’s go into what he had said. If he has made some expose, it may be true,” said Union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde.
