Will see evidence against IB officer in Ishrat case, says new home secy

Amid a tussle between IB and CBI over action against Intelligence Bureau’s special director Rajendra Kumar in Ishrat Jahan case, new Union home secretary Anil Goswami on Sunday said he will see whether there was enough evidence to prosecute the senior IPS officer. ‘I will see what evidence is available. I will see the documents,’ he told reporters here after taking charge as Union home secretary. He was replying to a question whether the CBI has enough evidence to prosecute Kumar for his suspected role in the conspiracy to carry out the alleged fake encounter in which Ishrat Jahan and three others were killed in Gujarat nine years ago.

Last week, a senior Home Ministry official said that CBI had shared with the Ministry evidence against the special director of IB.
