Firstpost deletes Interview with maker of “The Ishrat Jahan Conspiracy”

The past few weeks have been extremely revealing. One after another, various people from posts of importance have spilt the beans on the Ishrat Jahan cover-up.

First, David Headley revealed that Ishrat Jahan was a member of LeT. After that, a former Intelligence Bureau (IB) special director, Rajinder Kumar revealed that some greedy officials in the CBI tried to frame Modi for the murder of Ishrat Jahan. He also said that he was offered allurements by a very senior Congress leader to produce false evidence for implicating Narendra Modi in the Ishrat Jahan encounter case.

Later, another explosive revelation by RVS Mani, who was under-secretary in the Chidambaram-led Home Ministry, stunned people. He revealed that he was tortured by CBI officer Satish Verma. He claimed that he was not only harassed, hounded, chased and stalked by some CBI officers, but burnt by cigarette butts too. Apart from that, GK Pillai, Home Secretary at the time, has also alleged that Chidambaram bypassed him and “totally rewrote” the Ishrat affidavit.

More recently, even the then Home Minister P C Chidambaram has admitted to making, what he calls, “editorial changes” to the Ishrat Jahan affidavit of the Government.

In all this, an explosive video, shot in 2014, featuring Ajit Doval, Tavleen Singh, RSN Singh and Dr Gautam Sen also made a come-back. It documented the entire Ishrat Jahan case and the details regarding it. It was said that mainstream media had shunned this video and ignored it completely. We had run it on our site.

Today Firstpost, a news and opinion website owned by the Network18 group, published an interview with the maker of the documentary, UK-based doctor Manish Pandit. Along with the interview, the said documentary too was posted. The interview was titled – ‘It’s certain that Ishrat Jahan aided & abetted terrorists’: The story Indian media chose to ignore.

But mysteriously, the interview that was published this afternoon, has now disappeared from the site. Clicking on the link of the post takes us to this screen:

Further, the said piece is still available (at time of writing this report) on the mobile site of Firstpost, but experience from past such events tells us that this is likely to be an error and the post will be deleted from there as well.

In the past, Firstpost has been accused of succumbing to pressure from higher-ups and deleting a post by R Jagannathan. In an interview to us, R Jagannathan had clarified his position on the same.

As far as today’s post on the Ishrat Jahan documentary is concerned, we know for a fact that this documentary which was made in 2014 was left untouched by the mainstream media. Even now, Firstpost was probably the first mainstream media outlet to feature this video and to talk to the makers.

Did some higher power force Firstpost to take this post down? Why would Firstpost delete an interview they took pains to conduct? As of now there has been no explanation from Firstpost as to why this post was deleted. We have taken a screenshot of the entire post which is being reproduced here.
