New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has questioned the NIA probe in Jammu and Kashmir’s suspended Deputy Superintendent of Police Davinder Singh case and tweeted with the hashtag #WhoWantsTerroristDavinderSilenced.
Rahul Gandhi raised objections to the NIA chief and alleged that “the case is as good as dead.”
Rahul tweeted: “The best way to silence Terrorist DSP Davinder, is to hand the case to the NIA. The NIA is headed by another Modi – YK, who investigated the Gujarat Riots & Haren Pandya’s assassination. In YK’s care, the case is as good as dead.
A day earlier on Thursday, former Congress president had questioned the silence of the Prime Minister on Davinder Singh who was arrested for ferrying terrorists, and had also questioned the suspended Deputy SP’s role in Pulwama attack.
“DSP Davinder Singh sheltered 3 terrorists with blood on their hands at his home & was caught ferrying them to Delhi. He must be tried by a fast track court within 6 months & if guilty, given the harshest possible sentence for treason,” Rahul had tweeted on Thursday.
Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi also criticised the government on Davinder Singh saying, “his arrest in J&K raises disturbing questions critical to India’s national security. It seems rather odd that he not only evaded detection but was entrusted with extremely sensitive duties like escorting foreign envoys to J&K under the prevailing circumstances.”
Davinder Singh was arrested on January 11 along with Hizbul Mujahideen commander Naveed Babu, his accomplice Rafi and a lawyer named Irfan from a car on the highway near Kulgam. He was allegedly taking Babu to Jammu to help him travel to Pakistan in connivance with Irfan.
