Doctor, hamaare liye jhoot bol do
It’s more of a letter bomb than a letter.
Dr Tanveer Ansari, one of the main accused in the Mumbai train blast case — a man whose ‘confessions’ police claim have helped them get key conspirators — has written a letter to the MCOCA court listing the methods used by the police to make him ‘talk’.
Ansari alleges that ATS chief K P Raghuvanshi told him bluntly that the police knew he had no role in the blasts and then told him to lie to strengthen their case.
He also alleges that another officer tried to bribe him: saying he would be paid and taken care of if he memorised a statement that indicted him and stuck to it in court. Part of this happened in the presence of police commissioner A N Roy, says Ansari.
Ansari’s letter was submitted to the MCOCA court on November 3. It is now part of court record, which means that the police will have to respond to it at the time of trial.
