Ahmed Patel seeks 'impartial' probe into Gujarat IS arrests

Ahmed Patel seeks 'impartial' probe into Gujarat IS arrests”

In the letter, Ahmed Patel stressed on need to rise above political differences in matter which involve national security.

Two days later, he was arrested for allegedly plotting an Islamic State-inspired lone-wolf terror attack on a synagogue in Ahmedabad.

"I call upon you...as the Home Minister of India to instruct relevant law enforcement agencies to take this investigation to its logical end in an impartial and objective manner". In a press conference, Patel clarified that it is the job of agencies to frame terror charges and not political leaders.

Patel, a close aide of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's had demanded Centre's intervention in the matter.

He said that national security matters cannot be prisoners of politics and neither can be reduced to maligning political opponents for electoral gains. Your government has my unstinted support in this endeavour. Gujarat, he said, has a proud of history of believing in peaceful co-existence and incidents of radicalisation of the local population are inimical to the very idea of the state and its culture and "deserve to be investigated with utmost gravity by competent law enforcement agencies". "Therefore, I find it extremely disturbing that the ruling party in Gujarat is vitiating a serious ongoing investigation just ahead of elections by making wild and unsubstantiated allegations".

Kasim Stimberwala, according to this report, had quit as an echo-cardiogram technician from Sardar Patel Hospital in Ankleshwar district of Bharuch district and had got a job and a work visa for Jamaica. Congress will have to answer. "If Ahmed Patel was a patron of hospital from where two suspected ISIS terrorists were arrested then should he be not held responsible", Rupani had said during a press briefing here. "It can not run away", Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi had said at a press conference here.

Patel was one of the trustees during the hospital's formative years and had resigned as a trustee in 2014 facilitating a new board of trustees to take over the facility.
