Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee’s Minority Department president Haji Mohammad Haroon has demanded high level probe into life threats to slain Maharashtra ATS chief Hemant Karkare by Hindutva forces as revealed by the All India Congress Committee general secretary Digvijay Singh.


Haji Haroon, who is also Jamiat-e-Ulama Hind, Madhya Pradesh Unit president, in a statement here on December 14 said that from the very beginning the violent death of Karkare following the 26/11 militants operation in Mumbai is shrouded in mystery. Even Karkare’s wife has herself been expressing doubts over her husband’s assassination and the way investigations were carried out into it by the probing agencies. His family had also said that Karkare was under threat before he was gunned down on that fateful November 26 night in 2008, he stated.

It is also well known that the manner in which the investigations were progressing into bomb blasts in the country the Hindu militant organizations and their sympathizers were not at all happy, Haji Haroon pointed out.

Haji Haroon said Digvijay Singh is a responsible senior Congress leader and a forthright politician whose statement on threat to Karkare’s life leading to his murder should not be taken lightly and dismissed summarily. His statement should not be construed as an insult to the martyred high police officer as it would amount to injustice.

He recalled that in the past former Union Minister Abdul Rahman Antulay and other secular leaders had also spoken in the same vein as regard to Karkare’s murder as Singh has contended but no proper attention was paid to it.

Haji Haroon stressed that with the statement of Digvijay’s there comes no blot on Karkare’s martyrdom or his exalted position but thorough high level investigations into the circumstances of his murder will reveal the hands working behind his liquidation.

Meanwhile, according to an agency report Digvijay Singh today insisted that he has spoken to the police officer a few hours before the 26/11 attacks and he has proof of this.

"I have got records for that. Absolutely, I am firm on this. I did speak to him and I have stated that already," he told reporters in Guwahati.

"I am sure those who are saying that I did not talk to Karkare would be proved wrong," he later told news an agency.

Digvijay's remarks came following a media report which said that call records of Karkare's cell phone showed that he had neither called nor received a call from the Congress general secretary during that period.

As he came under fire, Digvijay had yesterday stuck to his stand that Karkare had spoken about threats from right-wing groups during the telephonic conversation with him.

Digvijay had subsequently clarified that he never doubted the role of Pakistani elements in the Mumbai attacks. Singh also trained his guns on BJP, maintaining that the opposition party lent its support to Hindu radical groups.
