The Union Home Ministry has decided to examine files relating to the controversial Ishrat Jahan case after former Home Secretary G K Pillai said ex-Home Minister P Chidambaram had changed an affidavit, which originally described Ishrat and her slain aides as LeT operatives.
A Home Ministry official told PTI that – “We are trying to locate files relating to Ishrat Jahan case. We are yet to get all files as some of these are yet to be traced,”
The official said re-look of the Ishrat Jahan files was necessitated following the statement of the former Home Secretary. “We are looking at the files keeping in view that new facts have come to light,” he said.
