The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) strongly disagreed with Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s claim that the Pakistani Inter-services Intelligence had approached the victims of the Muzaffarnagar  flare-up, saying no such input was received by the Central intelligence agencies.

“As per the available information from the Central intelligence agencies, they do not have any input to suggest that the ISI had contacted the youth from the families belonging to the minority community, who were affected by the recent communal riots in Muzaffarnagar,” Minister of State for Home  R P N Singh told the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.

Earlier in January, the city Police had busted an LeT module with links to terror modules in Muzaffarnagar. The revelation had triggered a  political controversy, prompting the  authorities  to clarify that those in touch with the LeT handlers were not the riot victims but were residents of nearby areas.  At a rally last year, Rahul had claimed that ISI operatives had sent feelers to the relatives of the Muslims killed in the Muzaffarnagar riots.
