Kenneth Heywood, an employee of Campbell White, a US based computer and soft-skills training company, has given the Indian security officials a slip and left the Country after being asked not to.
He was questioned by the Anti-terrorist squad (ATS) and the Mumbai and Delhi Police after it was found out thatÂ his internet protocol (IP)Â was used to send the terror email just 5 minutes before blasts ripped the city of AhmedabadÂ last month.
His legal advisor has come up with the lamest excuse that Heywood was scared a narcotic analysis, which was supposed to be conducted by the security officials,Â would cause substantial brain damage. The US embassy has refused to provide any details regarding the matter.
The Delhi Police is blaming the immigration officials at Delhi Airport for the negligence. What is baffling isÂ why would Heywood escape if he has nothing to hide. Supposedly he wasÂ accused of being a CIA agent, Navy Seal, Commando, by the authorities. How far this is correct is yet to be seen.
The Indian Police and ATS shouldÂ duckÂ in shame at their stupidityÂ for not keeping tabs on him. Even if he was not a suspect, he was still being interrogated. Did they think HeywoodÂ would be always obliging and wait for his next call?Â HE IS AN AMERICANÂ for heaven’s sake. They can get away with anything even if they have Guatanamo Bay to their name.
