Bid to derail our space mission: Govt in Isro case

AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat high court reserved till Thursday afternoon its order on former DGP R B Sreekumar’s transit bail plea in connection with the Isro espionage case, in which a scientist, S Nambi Nayaranan, accused cops including Sreekumar of torturing and framing him.
Sreekumar sought transit bail from the court apprehending arrest by the CBI till he obtains anticipatory bail from the Kerala high court.
While Sreekumar’s advocate, M M Tirmizi, sought time to reply to the CBI’s affidavit, additional solicitor general S V Raju opposed granting any leniency and submitted, “This is a gross case involving sabotage of India’s cryogenic rocket engine programme at the instance of foreign powers like Pakistan’s ISI. The targets were top scientists involved in the programme. They were arrested and tortured.”
