Why does Karti fear questioning by the CBI & ED?
Karti Chidambaram, a partner in corruption with his father P Chidambaram must be aware of how investigating agencies dealt with their opponents during interrogations. We now know how Home Ministry’s Director R V S Mani, Sadhvi Pragya, Col. Purohit were handled cruelly by investigating agencies when Chidambaram was the Home Minister. This might be the prime reason for son Karti’s hesitation to appear before the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED). Does he fear third-degree treatment from these agencies like what used to happen during his father’s heydays?
Chidambaram, who did all the wrongs might be fearing that the BJP led Government may pay him back with the same coin.
In the Ishrat Jehan case, Chidambaram was leading the pack of hyenas to fix many senior Intelligence Bureau officers to target the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi with the help of uncouth officials and paid media such as NDTV and Tehelka. The CBI team headed by the then Director Ranjit Sinha and Special Director Saleem Ali and gang hounded and tortured Home Ministry’s Director R V S Mani to name Intelligence Bureau officials like Rajendra Kumar. Mani recently came on TV said that errant CBI officers tortured him and threatened him always. Like a third-rate mafia team, the pliant CBI officers put their legs on his chair and threatened to plunge cigarettes on him.
Is Karti afraid he will get the same treatment as meted out during his father’s days in the UPA?
Sadhvi Pragya also came on TV and said how she was tortured by the Mumbai Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) team, the probe directly monitored by none other than Home Minister Chidambaram. She was tortured, beaten, thrown at the wall occasionally by the ruffian interrogating team. Similar was the painful story of Purohit, who is a serving Army Colonel.
These horrific stories during interrogation might be now a nightmare for Karti. Chidambaram, who did all the wrongs might be fearing that the BJP led Government may pay him back with the same coin. He is well aware that after the interrogation of his son, he will be next. The case is of Karti accepting kickbacks for Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance dubiously given by father Chidambaram to INX Media.
Now all their designs and forum shopping in various courts and calling in favors from some people in power has ended. On August 23, Karti is landing in the CBI headquarters. Both father and son knew their destiny.
