Govt behind Parliament, Mumbai 26/11 terror attacks: Report
Sunday July 14, 2013 12:36 PM, ummid.com News Network

In a sensational revelation, India's leading English daily quoting a former home ministry officer has reported that the 2001 Parliament and 2008 Mumbai terror attacks were staged by the government.

"R V S Mani, who as home ministry under-secretary signed the affidavits submitted in court in the Ishrat Jahan encounter case, has said Satish Verma, until recently a part of the CBI/SIT probe, had told him that both the terror attacks were set up with the objective of strengthening the counter-terror legislation", the Times of India said in its front page report.

Mani said Verma narrated that 13/12/2001(Parliament attack) was followed by Pota (Prevention of Terrorist Activities Act) and 26/11/2008 (terrorists siege of Mumbai) was followed by an amendment to the UAPA (Unlawful Activities Prevention Act), the report said.

The official has alleged that Verma levelled the charge debunking the IBs inputs labelling the three killed with Ishrat in the June 2004 encounter as Lashkar terrorists, the TOI report said.

The report is set to embarrass the government as a section in the country has repeatedly questioned the investigations into various terror attacks in India.

Questions were also raised about the conviction of Afzal Guru in the Parliament attack case. Afzal Guru was later hanged in Tihar jail.
