Tihar: Probe ordered into Afzal's meeting with journo
Onkar Singh in New Delhi | June 10, 2008 13:47 IST
A probe has been ordered to find out how a television channel interviewed Mohammed Afzal Guru -- who faces death sentence in the Parliament attack case -- at New Delhi's highly-guarded Tihar jail.
"The matter is being investigated by a DIG-ranked officer," said Tihar's public relations officer Sunil Gupta.
Gupta could not be reached for his comments despite several attempts.
Afzal, in the controversial interview, said he wanted the Bharatiya Janata Party's L K Advani to become the prime minister so that he could take a decision on his death sentence -- whatever it would be. He also accused the United Progressive Alliance government of playing double games by sitting on his clemency plea.
