For all the latest Pune News, The Har? It was not easy. whose son wants to be in the army. The report highlighted that land banks are available in Batala, I got an unusual break as a journalist. The senior police officer who introduced me to Yakub gave me a piece of paper with some Karachi addresses written on it “Can you get them photographed” he asked I had visited Karachi a few times and I could see that all the addresses were from upmarket residential areas I was told that two of the addresses were the homes of the most wanted men in India — Dawood Ibrahim and Mushtaq “Tiger” Memon the chief executor of the horrific March 1993 serial bombings in Mumbai The third address was of Karachi-based smuggler Taufiq Jallianwala who the CBI had discovered thanks to Yakub was the key link between Pakistan’s ISI agency and the Mumbai bombings Share This Article Related Article Since I was working on a follow-up report for India Today on Yakub’s sudden and mysterious return to India from Pakistan I immediately put an intrepid Pathan photographer in Karachi on the job The pictures arrived a few days later and the photographer confirmed that the grand bungalows indeed belonged to those notorious characters All the photos were published in India Today The senior CBI officer was so excited by this journalistic coup that he showed up at my house early one morning And then I got to hear the full story Yakub Memon had decamped from the Memons’ plush sanctuary in Karachi with a cache of material that exposed the close relationship between the ISI and his older brother Tiger He had flown to Nepal with the intention of crossing the border and assisting Indian authorities in exposing the heinous bomb conspiracy But what Yakub had done seemed too good to be true Was his return another devious conspiracy by the ISI Was the Pakistani spy agency laying a trap for Indian investigators CBI sleuths desperately needed to confirm at least one crucial piece of material evidence Yakub had brought along in order to believe his story The plucky Pathan photographer had done just that My CBI source was understandably elated How has it come about that a man like Yakub who provided critical assistance to Indian investigators to nail the ISI for the first time ever in the long-running proxy war against India is going to hang on Thursday morning in Nagpur jail When an individual betrays your trust you have the option of a legal remedy But when a state displays bad faith what do you do The legal dictionary defines “bad faith” as “the fraudulent deception of another person; the intentional or malicious refusal to perform some duty or contractual obligation” This is exactly what Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao’s government can be accused of for what it did to Yakub and the other Memons who surrendered to the CBI on his initiative convinced they would get justice in India The CBI showed me the video Yakub had shot at great personal risk of the bungalows including extensive shots of the inside of the mansion given to Tiger by the ISI I also heard an audio recording made by Yakub of conversations between Tiger and his associates Yakub also provided detailed and authentic information on how the ISI had chaperoned the Memons first in Karachi then for a while in Bangkok then back in Karachi and the identity of the Pakistani army officer who acted as their minder But here’s the rub “All the invaluable material Yakub provided us was produced during the trial” a CBI officer recalled “But it was interpreted in court as proof that all the Memons — and not just Tiger — were hiding from Indian authorities with the ISI’s help The evidence that should have helped the Memons was read against them” The reason was political By the time the trial started a jittery Rao government was mortally scared of accusations that it had gone “soft on terrorists” The irony is that after Yakub’s return not just CBI officers but even top Indian diplomats based in Dubai and Delhi had helped get the rest of the Memons safely back to India Yet the top-level clampdown meant that none of these officials could testify in court Overnight the Memons were dog meat But truth has a way of revealing itself Quite unexpectedly the highly respected intelligence officer B Raman who had organised the logistics for Yakub’s return broke the official omerta albeit from his grave Following Raman’s plea that Yakub should not hang as he had assisted the Mumbai bombings investigation retired Justice HS Bedi has suggested that the Supreme Court take suo motu notice of Raman’s revelations and ask a trial court to re-examine the evidence The evidence is already part of the legal record A judge only needs to reassess it with the help of all the officials who played key roles in l’affaire Memon But the officials will testify honestly only if they get an amnesty from the charge of contempt of court For as he admitted the fear of contempt was one important reason why Raman did not publish his article against Yakub’s death sentence during his lifetime The writer is a Delhi-based journalist For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related

Representational image CNN-News18 Nikhil Bhatiya a final year student of mining engineering was found in a pool of blood on the ground of the Lal Bahadur Hall of the campus in the morning on Saturday Soon the seriously injured 23-year-old student was taken to the campus hospital and later to a private hospital where he was declared brought dead An enquiry is on whether Bhatiya fell off accidentally or pushed by somebody The suicide angle is also being probed they said IIT officials said Bhatiya was a brilliant student but lately found depressed His parents residents of Mumbai had already been informed about the incident Amid growing suspense over who would be the chief ministerial pick of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Uttar Pradesh Amit Shah on Thursday said that the party will endorse its state unit president’s choice The move brought to a jarring halt the speculations around Keshav Prasad Maurya’s chances to be the state’s chief minister who until Wednesday was being considered amid the front-runners to the top job in key Hindi heartland state File photo of Keshav Prasad Maurya Image courtesy: CNN-News18 Maurya a prominent OBC face in the BJP rose to prominence due to the uncanny resemblance of his rags to riches story with Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself Like Modi Maurya was an OBC with humble begining He too rose the ranks of politics with the backing of the Sangh for being a dedicated RSSpracharak and Maurya had also worked as a tea seller in his initial days However what stood in the way of the BJP state unit chief’s otherwise stellar career were close to 10 criminal lodged against him including those of murder hate speech promoting enmity between groups criminal intimidation deliberate acts of hurting religious sentiment criminal conspiracy and rioting With the Modi-Shah magic resting on a clean governance and"Na khaunga na khane dunga"narrative it would have been tough for the duo to justify the choice Besides although Maurya has spectacularly cemented the OBC vote in the Allahabad-Kashi belt he remains a little known face outside his area of influence Maurya is also a vocal right-winger who does not shy away from voicing his pro-Hindu opinion Amid allegations of alienating the Muslims in ticket distribution and now subsequently in the legislative assembly the saffron party would not have wanted to court any more controversies Moreover in a well-curated narrative post Modi’s victory speech highlighting "governance for all" a hard-coreHinduvadivoice at the helm of the state would not have augmented well with the party’s strategy Shah’s wise decision of trumping Maurya to the top job can easily be veiled behind the the party’s much touted long-standing policy of "one man one post" with Maurya already being the orgnisational head of the saffron party’s state unit On the other hand someone like a Rajnath Singh — who has enough years on the ground under RSS canopy to please the Sangh and has been long enough in politics to walk the nuanced line of a liberal-right leaning ideology at least in the public view — would be a much better fit in the BJP’s new post-poll language Therefore in what could be termed a clever maneuver by Shah the saffron party by allowing Maurya to choose his pick for the top job has pacified the OBC leader and his support base while carefully wriggling out of a slippery situation WCCD’s president and chief executive officer, Anuj Prakash, he spotted his agent 13 shots.
