Report on Cabinet Secretary's `letter' submitted

NEW DELHI, SEPT. 3. The Central Forensic and Scientific Laboratory (CFSL) today submitted to the CBI its report on the letter purportedly written by the Cabinet Secretary to the Prime Minister's Office, opposing the disinvestment of Air India.

The CBI officials were tightlipped about the contents of the report but there were indications that the CFSL had concluded that the letter was not ``genuine.''

When the case was handed over to the CBI on August 24, agency sources had said that they would chalk out the next course of action only after receiving the CFSL report on the letter. And if the letter was found forged, a probe would be launched. The issue cropped up after the Congress leader, Mr. Priyaranjan Dasmunsi, accused the Government of giving away an important PSU like Air India to companies whose affiliates were being investigated for alleged FERA violation.
