US Seeks JET Airways Security Details From India

Tue Jul 05, 2005 1:49 pm

As per an article in NewIndpress, US govt. is seeking information on Jet Airways from Civil Aviation Ministry of India. Some selected Quotes:

It's learnt that Robert Blake, currently the US Acting Ambassador and Charge D' Affaires in India, has written to the Civil Aviation Ministry in this regard.
Sources said attention has been drawn particularly to charges that the airline received funds from Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar between 1991 and 1993. Dawood had been designated an international terrorist by the US government.

Jet Airways, Inc., claims to have also submitted a CD with information in support of its allegations. Here, the airline alleges that Jet Airways (India) received funds from the “Kaskar family”. It has questioned the original transfer of $10 million with which Jet Airways was started in 1991.

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THESE ALLEGATIONS HAVE ANY MERIT?
