Who killed Shaila?

September 04 2011

The investigations of Shaila Masood’s murder may have been handed over to the CBI, but when the list of close friends of this RTI activist was sifted, several interesting facts came to light. Among them include the names of two prominent Cabinet ministers of Manmohan government, a Congress secretary who is closest to Rahul Gandhi, former vice chancellor of Jamia, a minister of Madhya Pradesh government, an Assembly member, a close relative of the chief minister, the owners of two big newspaper groups, the chairman of a tourism corporation and three IAS and two IPS officials. For now only Tarun Vijay’s name has come out in the open, and that too because as the president of the Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Trust, Tarun had given the responsibility of making a film of late Mukherjee to Shaila. They became close during the process. She met Kamalnath and Jairam Ramesh during her “Project Tiger” movement. She was also in-charge of the Anna campaign in Madhya Pradesh. Prima facie, the investigation agencies suspect that the mining lobby and a prominent police officer (IPS) may have a hand behind her murder. Should we understand from this that “Wo shokh intequam ka khangar nahi raha/ shishagaron ke sheher mein pathhar nahi raha”.
