NEW DELHI: The Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Thursday urged the government to aptly compensate Syed Maqbool Shah, who was recently acquitted by a Delhi court in the Lajpat Nagar bomb blast case in Delhi after spending 14 years in jail.
“Syed Maqbool Shah should be adequately compensated... the Centre should intervene and give him a job and ensure a secure life. He has been a victim of a totally flawed investigation and we cannot shrug it off as collateral damage. We should rehabilitate him in order to give the right message to the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” CPI(M) member Brinda Karat said in the Rajya Sabha.
Recalling Mr. Shah's ordeal, Ms. Karat said the innocent Kashmiri, then 17, was picked up by the police for the bomb blast case and false evidence was planted on him.
