    New Delhi: A former officer of Central Bureau of Investigation has created uproar by claiming that both attack on Parliament House in 2001 and the Mumbai terror attacks on 26.11.2008 were ordered by governments of respective periods to strengthen the anti-terror law.
    While Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA was at helm in 2001, it was Congress-led United Progressive Alliance which was in power at time of 26/11 attacks in 2008.
    According to reports, a senior officer of Home Ministry investigating the Ishrat Jahan Fake encounter case has submitted an affidavit in the court stating that a member of CBI and SIC investigation team Satish Verma told him that in the terrorists attacks on Parliament in Delhi and Mumbai terror attacks were pre-planned by authorities.
    A key government official, R V S Mani said that Satish Verma, until recently a part of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe team, told him that both the terror attacks were set up 'with the objective of strengthening the counter-terror legislation (sic).
    Mani has said that Verma narrated that the 13.12. 2001(attack on Parliament) was followed by POTA (Prevention of Terrorist Activities Act), same way as 26/11 was followed by amendment to the UAPA (Unlawful Activities Prevention Act).
    The official has alleged Verma levelled the damaging charge while debunking IB's inputs labelling the three killed with Ishrat in the June 2004 encounter as Lashkar terrorists.
    "I don't know what the complaint is, made when and to whom. Nor am I interested in knowing. I cannot speak to the media on such matters. Ask the CBI," said Verma, when contacted to verify the allegations. He is presently posted as principal of the Junagadh Police Training College.
