Congress should apologise to Ishrat encounter heroes: BJP

New Delhi, Feb 11 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday demanded an apology from the Congress hours after Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist-turned-approver David Coleman Headley revealed that Ishrat Jahan was a member of the terror outfit.

“The Congress president and vice president should apologise to the heroes who killed LeT terrorist Ishrat Jahan and her accomplices,” BJP leader Shrikant Sharma said here.

The Ishrat Jahan encounter took place in Gujarat on June 15, 2004, and was led by Deputy Inspector General D.G. Vanzara, who was later jailed in the Sohrabuddin Shaikh encounter case.

“Instead of praising the brave policemen, questions were raised on their sincerity and they were put behind bars by the Congress regime. Now the mask has come off their faces,” he added.

Sharma alleged that the Congress had tried to politicise terror in order to defame the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He also alleged that it tried to influence the NIA and CBI probes into the encounter case.
