Winter Session of Parliament Update
In Rajya Sabha, CPI(M) MP John Brittas raises the question of media reports of the US linking an Indian official to an alleged murder attempt on a US national and Govt of India's rebuttal to Canada's charges, EAM Dr S Jaishankar says, "...Insofar as the US is concerned, certain inputs were given to us as part of our security cooperation with the US. Those inputs were of concern to us because they related to the nexus of organised crime, trafficking and other matters. So, because it has a bearing on our own national security, it was decided to institute an inquiry into the matter and an inquiry committee has been constituted. Insofar as Canada is concerned, no specific evidence or inputs were provided to us. So, the question of equitable treatment to two countries one of whom has provided inputs and one of whom has not, does not arise."
