Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy today demanded a scrutiny of the phone records produced by Congress leader Digvijay Singh to prove that he spoke to slain police official Hemant Karkare, hours before his death.
Swamy said the nation "must reject the ridiculous" claim of Singh that the records show that the police official had spoken to him about the "harassment" allegedly meted out to him by Hindutva forces.
"The nation has not been provided with any evidence so far if what conversation, if any, took place or the duration of the call," he said in a statement here.
"The photocopy of the telephone records that Singh produced before TV cameras needs to be scrutinised since the telephone number on which a call was made from Singh's telephone was to a general SIT number in Mumbai and not to any of the two numbers on which Karkare could be accessed," Swamy said.
Under attack over his claim about a call from Karkare, Singh yesterday produced record of the conversation the slain ATS chief had with him on 26/11 and sought apology from Maharashtra Home Minister R R Patil and all others who had dubbed him a "liar".
