Fake ISRO spy case: Maldivian woman seeks compensation
Fauzia Hassan was once a popular name in the Kerala newspapers, particularly at the peak of the ISRO spy case controversy. She was one among the two Maldivian women who was booked on the charges of espionage by the Kerala police and IB. It was the statements forcibly retrieved from the two Maldivian women that the police and IB used to malign the image of two highly talented scientists, Nambi Narayanan and D. Sasikumar, and a senior police officer, Raman Srivastava, and implicate them in the ISRO spy case, which was later proved as a fake case.
As the result of a long legal battle, Nambi Narayanan received what he deserved- justice. The top court of the country ordered the Kerala government to give a huge compensation to the scientists, whose contributions could have taken the Indian space research to an enviable height.
Now, earning the strength of courage from the SC’s recent judgement related to the case, Ms Hassan, while speaking to the media personals, in an exclusive interview, has requested the Kerala government and the Indian government to give her adequate compensation for the mental and physical agony she underwent while she was under the police and IB custody in connection with the ISRO spy case investigation.
Anyway, Ms Hassan has expressed happiness in the SC’s latest judgement. However, she has claimed that she was not in a strong financial position to launch a legal battle for her compensation.
Don’t we have a moral obligation to compensate the victims of the Fake ISRO CASE?
