The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - FRONT PAGE - Arun.Ram@ times­group.com

Chennai: Two days af­ter the Supreme Court or­dered a com­pen­sa­tion of Rs 50 lakh to Isro sci­en­tist Nambi Narayanan in the fake ‘Isro spy case’ and a ju­di­cial com­mit­tee to probe the role of “er­ring of­fi­cers”, Mariam Rasheeda, the Mal­di­vian woman whose ar­rest trig­gered the sen­sa­tional case in 1994, told TOI over phone from an undis­closed lo­ca­tion that she would sue the po­lice of­fi­cers and seek com­pen­sa­tion.

“I was tor­tured in cus­tody to name Nambi Narayanan. I’ve lost my rep­u­ta­tion. I will not leave them,” Mariam said in her first in­ter­view since 1998 when the SC ex­on­er­ated her and six oth­ers ac­cused of pass­ing on In­dia’s rocket se­crets to Pak­istan.
