Prime News, National (New Delhi), September 1:- The Congress on Friday asked why the government’s top investigative agency, the National Investigation Agency (NIA), was not involved in probing the alleged plot to assassinate the prime minister in a “Rajiv Gandhi-type event to end Modi-raj”.
Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said, “Does common sense tell that there is a possible assassination plot against the prime minister, which he condemned, but asked why the country’s top probe agencies were not involved and it was left to the Pune Police to carry out investigations.”
“I am gravely concerned about the security of the prime minister if you are leaving the matter like this to the Pune Police,” he said.
“Nobody in the right mind should be supported who is trying to attack the Prime Minister of India. Do you think that an illusion of grandeur that the Pune Police is in charge of the investigation and the NIA is nowhere to be seen, CBI is nowhere to be seen?
“The biggest investigative agency of our country are not to be seen in the PM’s part of an assassination attempt and the Pune Police is in-charge? I find it absurd,” he told reporters. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
