Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is seems to e in serious trouble when top Attorney General informed the Supreme Court today that documents relating the deal have been stolen from Ministry of Defense.
“We are investigating how these documents were stolen,” the government’s top lawyer, Attorney General KK Venugopal, told the Supreme Court, which was hearing petitions asking for a review of its clean chit in December to the 2016 deal signed between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and France.
The government alleged the “theft of classified documents after petitioners drew the court’s attention to a report by The Hindu this morning highlighting that the deal signed by PM Modi was more expensive than the one negotiated by the previous Congress-led UPA government, because of France’s refusal to provide bank guarantees”.
“We have not stolen anything. We got it from confidential sources and we are committed to protecting these sources. Nobody is going to get any information from us on these sources. But the documents speak for themselves and the stories speak for themselves,” Mr Ram told state media.
