Bhopal: Why was Dhruv Saxena not killed in encounter asks Congress


BHOPAL: The alleged agents of Pakistani Inter-services Intelligence (ISI) arrested from Madhya Pradesh had links with the ruling party. It is ironical that Dhruv Saxena and others who were found to be members of the ISI spy ring were not killed in a police encounter.

This was stated in the call-attention motion tabled by the Congress in Vidhan Sabha on Monday. Congress MLA Govind Singh wanted to know what action was taken against the accomplices of these persons, who were helping a terrorist organisation. Ramniwas Rawat said the racket, basically, was about corruption and underhand financial dealings. He said the government should seize the property of these persons.

Home minister Bhupendra Singh said the ISI case primarily involved monetary transactions. He said two persons were taken into custody from Jammu for spying for the ISI. It was revealed that they had done some financial transactions with Satna-based persons. He said further probe revealed that they were running parallel exchanges. Around 15 persons had been arrested in the case so far.

The minister said the accused were transferring money into bank accounts of various persons. The ATS was probing the case and so far, the bank accounts of five accused had been seized. About the train blast case, the HM said the accused had made an IED using information gleaned from websites of ISIS and Al Qaida. He said NIA was probing further into the case.
