Shocking Expose!! This is how CIA tried to destroy ISRO and our Scientists

CIA is World’s biggest spy agency and the most effective one as well. It has been observed that CIA is a kind of a parallel government in USA and they have been assigned with some special tasks to control different Nations and their regimes. CIA has been accused of carrying out several coups, political murders and many such other activities across the World.

It is very usual to suspect CIA’s hand in several such incidents in India, there have been many conspiracy theories in past which points out at CIA. Especially our Science and Technology programme have been highly infiltrated by CIA and their spies, and it has been said that many of our Scientists have been killed by CIA. All this to stop the technological advancement programme of India, all this to ensure India remain dependent on US Technology and expertise.

Today we will be telling you a shocking story of CIA’s dubious efforts to destroy ISRO and our Scientists in a structured fashion.

Nambi Narayanan, a former scientist of (ISRO), has come out with an autobiography in which he talks about his years at the ISRO and especially the difficult time he underwent when he was falsely implicated in the infamous 1994 spy case. Narayanan, who was accused of selling vital secrets associated with Indian space technology in 1994, was later acquitted by a CBI court and the Supreme Court in 1998. He spent a total of 50 days in jail along with his fellow scientist D Sasikumar and four others.

In his book named ‘Ormakalude Bhramanapatham’ (Orbit of memories) Narayanan paints the spy case as a conspiracy against him and the ISRO through the collective efforts of agents CIA in involvement with Indian police and intelligence officers. The case was produced out of thin air in order to stall India’s rapid advancements in the development of an indigenous cryogenic rocket engine.

As per him this spy case was the illegitimate child of the US-French agencies with the intention of burying me and the ISRO in the cemetery.The spy case saw a Maldivian woman being framed as a spy to carry secrets that never existed by police officials, politicians and journalists who knowingly or unknowingly fell for the plot of the CIA.

In June this year, former chief minister and CPM veteran VS Achuthanandan had released a book written by Siby Mathews, who headed the investigation into the ISRO spy case. In Narayanan’s excerpt, he talks about his meeting with Mathews after he was acquitted in the case.

“He (Mathews) told me that he was unknowingly pushed into the case by then-DGP Madhusudanan. He told me he did not intentionally try to trouble me,” wrote Narayanan in the book.Narayanan has sought re-investigation into the spy case to uncover the people behind it.

All accused scientists barring Nambinarayanan were exonerated by CBI in 1998. The accused also included Bangalore businessmen S. K. Sharma and Chandrasekhar, who allegedly looked after business aspects of the deal, besides Mariam Rasheeda and Sowzia Hassan, two Maldivian women accused of setting up honey traps. Nambinarayanan was finally given a reprieve on September 7, two days before ISRO’s successful PSLV launch. A Kerala High Court division bench upheld a National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) directive to the state government to pay Rs 10 lakh as interim compensation to the scientist within three months.

NHRC issued the order in 2001, after the scientist filed a case against the state government in 1999 demanding Rs 1 crore as compensation. That case is still pending in the Thiruvananthapuram sub-divisional court. The division bench, however, vacated the NHRC directive to initiate action against police officers who violated the scientist’s human rights. It also overruled the quashing of NHRC’s 2001 order by a single bench of the state high court in 2006.

As ISRO’s landmark launch was being telecast nationally, Nambinarayanan sat at home in Thiruvanantha-puram with his TV set switched off. “I’m proud of our achievement. But the agony and shame I suffered for the 18 years has sapped me,” he says.

Though the high court order has come as a breather, the scientist is not enthused. “We worked hard for India’s scientific progress, but were hunted by our own security agencies. Later, the state tried to deny us compensation,” he says. “If this is the way India treats its scientists, how can one be excited?” he asks.
