The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
Scuttling the Ishrat Case
The decision of the Central government not to sanction prosecution of some Intelligence Bureau officials in the Ishrat Jahan murder case is a blatant attempt to subvert the case. The CBI, after investigation, had proceeded to chargesheet those involved in the crime, including the four IB officers. The decision of the Home Ministry to protect these persons is unconscionable.
