Kandahar hijacking planned by govt: Accused

Patiala: A prime accused in the hijacking of an Indian airlines plane to Kandahar today told a special court here that the entire drama was planned by the Indian government.
Deposing before the designated court, Yusuf Nepali said the entire hijacking drama was fabricated by then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Union Home Minister L K Advani and External Affairs Minister Yashwant Sinha.
The IC-814 flight was hijacked after it took over from Kathmandu and was taken to Kandahar in Afghanistan.
Nepali, who allegedly assisted the hijackers, told the court that it was an attempt by the government to get rid of three terrorists of Harkat-ul-Mujahideen.
He said the government was of the view that in case the terrorists were let off, they could be either killed in an encounter or in terrorist activities.
