THE FALL­OUT OF

THE LET­TER BOMB

India Today - - NATION -

The an­nounce­ment declar­ing Naren­dra Modi as PM can­di­date may be de­layed till af­ter Assem­bly elec­tions.

CBI has taken cog­ni­sance of D. G. Van­zara’s let­ter and will quiz him about it, treat­ing it as an ex­tra- con­sti­tu­tional con­fes­sion.

CBI will try to make Van­zara an ap­prover in the case un­der Sec­tion 164 of CrPC. If the IPS of­fi­cer agrees, Modi could be made an ac­cused in the case.

The let­ter could also open flood­gates for the 32 other po­lice­men ac­cused in en­counter cases, to con­fess, seek par­don and

im­pli­cate Modi. CBI could press for can­cel­la­tion of Amit Shah’s bail in the en­counter killings of Sohrabud­din Sheikh and Tul­siram Pra­jap­ati.

With Amit Shah’s cred­i­bil­ity at an all- time low, BJP’s cam­paign in Ut­tar Pradesh will suf­fer a blow.

Congress will step up its at­tack on Modi, now that it has an­other stick to beat him with.
