Saturday 18 February
Probing the Indian angle in the Iraqi oil-for-food scam, the Enforcement Directorate began questioning Former External Affairs Minister K Natwar Singh to seek clarifications about some documents which the Directorate had procured from Jordan and Iraq. Singh was questioned for two hours each on Friday and Saturday after the Directorate had issued him summons to appear before it "as per his convenience". ED officials have also questioned Andaleep Sehgal, Director of Hamdan Exports, who was mentioned in Volcker probe report on Iraq's oil-for-food programme, Natwar's son Jagat Singh, former Rajasthan Youth Congress president Jamil Zaidi and Aneil Matherani, India's former envoy to Croatia, several times as part of their investigations.

Tuesday 6 December
Finally, the erstwhile minister for external affairs, then a minister without a portfolio, was first unceremoniously dropped from the Congress Steering Committee, and as the opposition stalled proceedings in Parliament, demanding his resignation, he finally, after much kicking and screaming, did at long last put in his papers. It was his son Jagat Singh who, ironically, summed up the theatre of the absurd that had been reduced to a farce: 'Why stage this whole drama, why not make him resign on the first day itself?' Indeed. But what remains a mystery is as to why neither Jagat Singh nor Natwar Singh have been questioned by the Enforcement Directorate or any other investigative agency so far. Former Indian Ambassador to Croatia Aniel Matherani, earlier the secretary of the Congress Foreign Cell, whose interview -- which he subsequently predictably denied -- in a leading publication had revived the controversy, on landing back in India, meanwhile has gone off the press, after being whisked off by the ED and other intelligence agencies. The whistleblower faces the inquest, but not the accused, it would seem.
