Home Minister Rajnath Singh lamented on the missing of  key documents related to the Ishrat Jahan case from his ministry.

“Two letters from the then home secretary to the attorney general in 2009 have gone missing. The then attorney general had vetted two affidavits regarding the case. Those are also not available,” Rajnath Singh told the Lok Sabha while replying to a brief discussion over the  Lashkar-e-Taiba woman terrorist who was killed in a police firing on June 15, 2004.

Without naming Congress’s P. Chidambaram, Rajnath Singh alleged that affidavits were corrected on the intervention of the then home minister.
