Story of their Assassins continues ………….
There, standing almost next to me, was MS. He obviously did not know of me or recognize me. On reaching the terminal building, he calmly left, right in front of my eyes. My last hope of the Special Cell picking him up from the arrival area had vanished into thin air.
After collecting my check-in baggage I exited the terminal and drove straight to the Special Cell office. I was furious at being let down, and that too with such brazenness. I stormed into Rajbir’s office and saw him sitting with Mohan Sharma. I shouted at them for their strange behaviour and demanded an explanation. They were not my subordinates as I was in the CBI and they in the Delhi Police. But, we had worked together as a team on several occasions and I felt I had the moral right to question them. In any case, I was their senior in police hierarchy by many ranks. Rajbir calmed me down after I had given full vent to my fury. He then gave me his side of the story.
On receiving the information about MS from me, Rajbir had shared it with his immediate superiors who had thought it prudent to get the approval of their political bosses, particularly because MS was an MP. The permission to apprehend him had been denied. The two officers were also under instructions from their immediate superiors to distance themselves from me for a while. No wonder they hadn’t answered any of my calls.
I was later to learn that some kind of political initiative was afoot to forge an alliance between MS and other politicians in Bihar to derail the ruling party there. It did not matter that MS was wanted in a serious case of conspiracy to derail the very same government that was denying permission for his arrest. It also did not matter that MS was regularly in touch with the ISI and Kashmiri militants.
