Ex-scientist, scalded by Isro scandal, asks for probe

Former Isro scientist S Nambi Narayanan, falsely implicated in the 1994 espionage case has revived his call for a fresh probe into the case.

Speaking here on Thursday after releasing his biography Ormmakalude Bhramanapadham(The Orbit of Memories), Narayanan said re-investigation is crucial to understand the role of forces outside the country.

Authored by journalist G Prajesh Sen, the book describes grueling physical torture Narayanan underwent, but the 76-year-old scientist said he has moved on from the humiliation and now awaits answers to many important questions.

"The CBI said it was a fabricated story. If so, who fabricated it? What was their motive? We need fresh investigation to expose that," Narayanan said. "I've lost a lot that can't be recovered, but there will, at least, be satisfaction that the actual culprits are not allowed to go free."
