Man who claimed to have killed A Raja’s aide goes missing
The man who had claimed to have murdered Sadiq Batcha, a close aide of former Telecom Minister A Raja and important witness in the 2G case, has gone missing before CBI could question him. The agency was planning to question 24-year-old K Prabhakaran, who had claimed in a press conference on May 17 that he had killed Batcha in 2011 and named a senior IPS officer and a relative of Batcha as partners in crime.
Prabhakaran had claimed Batcha was murdered after he gave CBI “vital information” that went against Raja, the main accused in the 2G case. Since his press conference, despite best efforts of CBI, Prabhakaran could not be traced.
The agency has now launched a manhunt to trace him as his claims could change the nature of the 2G spectrum allocation scam case. The death case of Batcha might be changed to that of murder. And important persons may be named in the case.
Agency sources said local police were not cooperating in the probe and some officers have even gone to the extent of describing Prabhakaran as mentally unstable.
