CBI may not get Ishrat probe papers

The Home Ministry is unlikely to provide CBI files regarding two contradictory affidavits on Ishrat Jahan submitted by it in a court within a span of a month.

The Ministry, which had sought the opinion of Law Ministry on CBI request for files, is likely to write to the agency denying access to the documents citing security concerns.

Though Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde had said guilty officers will be punished, the Ministry is obstructing CBI’s efforts to find out the decision making process that led to the change in the first affidavit that claimed that Ishrat was linked to LeT.
