New Delhi, April 24 (IANS) The BJP Wednesday attacked Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit for sharing the dais with Mohammad Ahmad Kazmi, an accused in the Israeli embassy car blast.
Dikshit had shared stage with Kazmi during the re-launch ceremony of Urdu newspaper “Qaumi Salamati” in the capital Tuesday. Kazmi is the editor of the paper and is on bail.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Vijay Jolly demanded explanation from Dikshit whether her Congress-led government has given a “clean chit” to Kazmi who is involved in the matter which concerns “nation security”.
“This seems to be giving political legitimacy to an accused charge-sheeted by Delhi Police and Indian intelligence agencies,” Jolly said here.
“Such actions seem to give protection to the accused and embolden anti-national elements. And in such a sensitive matter, the people of the country demand an explanation from Delhi Chief Minister Dikshit,” he demanded.
Tal Yehoshua, wife of the Israeli defence attache here, suffered multiple injuries Feb 13, 2012 when a motorcycle rider attached a magnetic explosive device to her car and sped away. Within seconds, the device exploded, setting the car on fire near the prime minister’s house in central Delhi.
