U.S. Offer to Help Probe India Violence Protested

Leftists slam a proposal for the FBI to join the investigation of rebel attacks. Some say the agency seeks to explore ties to Islamic militants. An offer of FBI assistance in the investigation of a string of rebel attacks in India’s troubled northeast has sparked anger from left-wing allies of the country’s ruling coalition and questions among intelligence agencies here. The offer came in condolence letters sent Monday by U.S. Ambassador David C. Mulford to the chief ministers of Assam and Nagaland states, which have been rocked by rebel attacks that killed more than 80 people and injured more than 200. A similar overture was made to Shivraj Patil, head of the federal Home Affairs Ministry, which is responsible for security matters. Group Profile
