THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Former space scientist S Nambi Narayanan, the key accused in the ISRO spy case  who was later acquitted by the Supreme Court, on Thursday demanded a re-investigation into the case to establish the motives behind its creation.“I have only a simple request. Everyone now knows that it is a false case, which means it was a fabricated case. Then, somebody has fabricated it. Who is that somebody? There must have been someone. I suspect a player outside the country. Please don’t leave them free,’’ he said, during the launch of his biography ‘Ormakalude Bhramanapatham’ in Thiruvananthapuram. 

Demanding a re-investigation, Shashi Tharoor MP, who released the book, also demanded to push for it. ‘’At least we will have the satisfaction of having punished those who did it,’’ he said. Nambi Narayanan’s experience should serve as a cautionary tale, and a warning to all Indians that if it can happen to him, it can happen again to another. ‘’It is something that is deeply shaming and at the same time offers a painful eye-opening awakening to all that can go wrong even in a democracy,’’ Tharoor said. 

He added amongst all the mysteries that have assailed ISRO, one stands out. ‘’It is what happened to Nambi Narayanan,’’ he said. ‘Ormakalude Bhramanapatham,’ the Malayalam version of the biography is written by journalist Prajesh Sen and published by Current Books Thrissur. Asianet editor M G Radhakrishnan received the first copy of the book. The English version, written by journalist Arun Ram, will be out in December.
