NEW DELHI: BJP today said none of the accused arrested in Madhya Pradesh for allegedly being part of a Pakistan-run espionage racket was ever its member.
With Congress releasing photographs of some accused in the company of BJP leaders, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said such pictures do not have an evidentiary value and that photographs showing Congress leaders with BJP’s will not make them its members.
“The State unit has already issued a clarification. None of the accused has even been BJP’s office-bearers. Such photographs have no evidence in public life,” he told a press conference.
Eleven people were arrested from different places of Madhya Pradesh on February 9 for being part of an alleged espionage racket being run from Pakistan to collect strategic information on important Indian establishments. (AGENCIES)
