The story about Rahul Gandhi being arrested in the US along with his Live-in Colombian Girl friend has been doing the round for some time now.
Though I am aware of it I did not know of this particular news item.
Mr.Anil Gupta, a regular reader of my blogs mentioned this while commenting on my post ‘Modi’s Marriage, Karunanidhi Digvijay Answer These”
As usual Mr.Gupta is right on target.
As is confirmed now, Vajpayee seems to have interfered and had Rahul Gandhi released after having been detained by the FBI.
Now, Rahul Gandhi talks of System Failure, People empowerment,Corruption Mind set etc !(read my post on Rahul Gandhi’s TimesNow Interview)
Well facts speak for themselves.
A suit has been filed in the high court in Lucknow seeking information about the alleged detention of Congress MP Rahul Gandhi and his Columbian girlfriend by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in 2001.
According to the public interest litigation, Rahul, the son of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, and his companion were released after being detained at Boston airport following the intervention of the Prime Minister’s Office.
At that time, Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the Indian prime minister and Rahul was not a member of the Parliament.
“Vajpayee’s principal secretary and then national security adviser Brajesh Misra spoke to top US authorities to enable Rahul Gandhi and his girlfriend to get away,” claimed Prem Chandra Sharma, who moved the court along with three others.
The petition alleged that Rahul was found in illegal possession of about $ 200,000.
And it was in that connection that the FBI had detained him along with his girlfriend on Sep 21, 2001.
The FBI was said to have sought an explanation about Rahul’s possession of such a huge amount of money, which he was unable to provide, the petition said.
The petition sought a writ of mandamus to the Indian ambassador to the US as well as the union home secretary to make a disclosure about the entire episode.

“On September 27, 2001 Rahul Gandhi MP and his Columbian live in girl friend of Kerala backwater tourist centre fame, Juanita alias Veronique, was arrested in United States of America’s Logan airport in Boston, by the FBI.
Rahul was having an Italian passport and was carrying suitcase full of dollars.
Some say it was about was it $2 million. This huge dollar amount generated suspicion with the US authorities.
Rahul and his girl friend was thus detained by FBI.
FBI suspected that Rahul was carrying terrorist funds or drug money for laundering in US. Rahuls GF is an daugter of an Columbian Drugs dealer
. What money Rahul Gandhi was carrying? Was it another Bofors type pay off?
Was it Columbian drug money on behalf of his Columbian girl friend?
Or was it fund for Osama Bin Laden group, as it is known that the Muslim terrorists are using Christians as front men for laundering terrorist funds as the normal banking channels are being monitored by FBI.
.Rahul called his mother Sonia Gandhi in India .
In turn Sonia called Brijesh Mishra, the former National Security Advisor and a key aide to former prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee at the Prime Ministers Office. Brijesh Mishra intervened on behalf of our PM Vajpayee with the US Administration for the release Rahul from FBI custody.
Brijesh Mishra has strong connections with Sonia Gandhi’s Italian family through his daughter Jyotsna.
Jyotsna is married to an Italian and lives in Italy .
Rahul Gandhi was released only when the Indian Ambassador intervened and gave assurances to the State Department that Rahul Gandhi will be produced for any future enquiry by FBI.
Not only that as a patriot, it was the duty of Brijesh Mishra to find out the reasons for the arrest and inform our CBI to take necessary further steps.
Brijesh Mishra did not do any such thing.
The incident clearly shows that Brajesh Mishra was working for Sonia Gandhi, that he had deep connections with US state department.
