Chidambaram vetted Ishrat affidavits

As the rage continues over the changes to the affidavits of Ishrat Jehan fake encounter case, former Home minister P Chaidambaram has admitted having made ‘editorial changes’ to the affidavits filed in the case.

“It was drafted, went to the attorney general, came to me. I, with a compulsive habit of all lawyers, made small ‘editorial’ changes. This is a habit of all lawyers. Any lawyer would put a comma here and there or strike out a word”, he said while replying to a question at the launch of a book “Standing Guard – A Year in Opposition” written by him at a hotel in Mumbai.

“And now they say those papers are missing. To whose advantage has the vetted draft gone missing? I want the vetted draft. To whose interest is to say that the draft is missing? There is nothing to hide. I think the mystery has been unravelled now,” he added.
