NEW DELHI: The year-old muffled whispers in the Ishrat Jahan case turned into rumblings on Tuesday after another ex-Home Ministry official went public indicting former home minister P Chidambaram for censoring the government affidavit in 2009 to allegedly fix Narendra Modi.

Chidambaram recently owned up to making changes and giving a clean chit to the terrorists, but by doing so tied himself in knots as ex-Under Secretary RVS Mani has now come out claiming he was made to sign the second affidavit in September 2009 that was changed at the political level to allegedly implicate political rivals.
