Guwahati, June 20: Samir Ahmed, who was chargesheeted by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for his alleged links with DHD-J, has expressed his desire to become a government approver.
He also recorded his voluntary confessional statement before a magistrate here today.
Before recording his statement at the CJM court, Ahmed told The Telegraph that he has decided to lay bare everything related to his links with DHD-J chairman Jewel Gorlosa and other leaders of the outfit. He said he wanted to become an approver.
“I want to make the confessional statement. I want to reveal everything I know,” he said.
“Despite not being a member of DHD-J, I am languishing behind bars for more than three years. It has ruined my career and devastated my family.”
Ahmed, who worked as an executive of HSBC Bank, was arrested by police along with Gorlosa from Bangalore on June 3, 2009, and since then he is lodged at Guwahati Central Jail.
According to NIA, Ahmed is a close associate of Gorlosa and he had facilitated his stay in Bangalore and also helped him get fake identity documents.
There have been apprehensions in some circles that Ahmed’s confession may put some DHD-J leaders in trouble.
If Ahmed becomes an approver, it may tighten the noose around some DHD-J leaders and other accused facing trial in the case.
Ahmed had written to the special NIA judge on June 14 where he desired to make a voluntary confession and become an approver.
