LUCKNOW: A suit has been filed in the high court here seeking information about the alleged detention of Congress MP Rahul Gandhi and his Colombian girlfriend by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in 2001.
The petition, filed by four lawyers, is likely to be heard Wednesday.
According to the public interest litigation, Gandhi, the son of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, and his companion were released after being detained at Boston airport following the intervention of the Prime Minister's Office.
At that time, Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the Indian prime minister and Gandhi was not a member of the Lok Sabha.
"Vajpayee's principal secretary and then national security adviser Brajesh Misra spoke to top US authorities to enable Rahul Gandhi and his girlfriend to get away," claimed Prem Chandra Sharma, who moved the court along with three others.
(NB: DID ANYONE EXPECT A SO-CALLED GOOD HINDU LIKE VAJPAYEE, TO HELP OUT THE CROOK?
IN BROKEN BHARAT, EVEN THE MOST DECENT LOOKING HINDU BABOO(N) IS the "SON OF A BITCH."
JUST IMAGINE, HAD IT BEEN ADVANI IN TROUBLE, EVERY CONGRESS "SONIA, KHAN, AND RAHUL" WOULD HAVE SAID, "HANG HIM! THE HINDU IS A BORN THIEF.")
Sharma claimed to have gathered this information through the Internet and said he had downloaded certain documents to substantiate his allegations.
The petition alleged that Gandhi was found in illegal possession of about $200,000. And it was in that connection that the FBI had detained him along with his girlfriend Sep 21, 2001. The FBI was said to have sought an explanation about Gandhi's possession of such a huge amount of money, which he was unable to provide, the petition said.
The petition sought a writ of mandamus to the Indian ambassador to the US as well as the union home secretary to make a disclosure about the entire episode.
