Bofors Gun killed Pilot, Scindia and Jitendra Prasada: Website

Weeks after claiming that the assassinations of former Prime Ministers Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi, and their Swedish counterpart Olof Palme were connected with the Bofors Gun controversy, an Indian website is now saying that three more senior Congress leaders were killed in this connection.

New Delhi, May 16 : Weeks after claiming that the assassinations of former Prime Ministers Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi, and their Swedish counterpart Olof Palme were connected with the Bofors Gun controversy, an Indian website is now saying that three more senior Congress leaders were killed in this connection.

According to politicsparty.com, the deaths of Rajesh Pilot, Jitendra Prasada and Madhavrao Scindia, all considered as future Prime Ministerial candidates, within a period of 15 months were not coincidence, but planned assassinations.

"Italian wheeler-dealer, now a fugitive from India's Investigative Agencies, Ottavio Quattrocchi masterminded the assassinations" of the three senior Congress leaders when the party was in the Opposition at the Centre, says the website.

Early this month, it said that in 1984 India was set to acquire the French Sofma gun, as it was cheaper than many others in the race, including the Bofors Gun.

But before the deal could have been inked, the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated. It was a part of a major conspiracy, as had Indira not been killed, the Bofors gun would not have been purchased.

It further said that later Rajiv Gandhi and Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme became close friends and the two negotiated the Bofors deal. However, the Indian PM asked his Swedish counterpart to revise price of the deal.

The Bofors gun was ultimately bought by India and allegations of kickbacks were made. Both Rajiv Gandhi and Olof Palme fell victims to hush up the controversy, says the website.
