New Delhi:

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has hit out at Congress president Rahul Gandhi for his remarks that no one killed Sohrabuddin' and said the appropriate question for to ask would be, 'who killed the investigation'. Jaitley said that more relevant than the Order of the acquittal is the observation of the Judge. "The observation of the Judge that in the investigation, from the very beginning, Investigating Agency did not investigate the case professionally in order to find out the truth but to divert it towards certain political persons," Jaitley said in a Facebook post.

"The Congress President Sh. Rahul Gandhi on the day of the judgement raised the issue “that nobody killed Sohrabuddin”. It would have been more appropriate if he had asked the right question, namely who killed Sohrabuddin case investigation, he would have got the right answer," he wrote on the Facebook.

The Union Minister in his Facebook post titled: 'Who killed the Sohrabuddin Investigation' said that those who have recently shown a belated concern for institutional independence, "should seriously introspect as to what they did to the CBI when they were in power." He further said that as Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, he had written a letter to the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on September 27, 2013, detailing the politicisation of the investigation in the Sohrabuddin, Tulsi Prajapati, Ishrat Jahan, Rajinder Rathore and the Haren Pandya cases. 

"Every word of what I have said in the letter, over the next five years, have proven to be true. This is an irrefutable evidence of what the congress did to our investigative agencies," Jaitley said. Earlier this month, a special CBI court acquitted all the 22 accused in the Sohrabuddin case.
