ATS playing political games?

Under whose influence was the ATS acting when it didn't chargesheet Sadiq for his role in Mumbai Train Blasts? How is it that the same ATS which acted with such a hurry to sully the reputation of Sadhvi Pragya Thakur and Lt. Col. Srikant Purohit drag its feet in chargesheeting Sadiq?

"MUMBAI: Indian Mujahideen's (IM) top operative Sadiq Sheikh's confession on his alleged role in the July 11, 2006 serial Mumbai train blasts has come as a huge embarrassment to the Maharashtra anti-terrorism squad. Two years ago, the ATS had chargesheeted 13 people but Sadiq and other members of IM module were not named as conspirators. "

Not long ago, a study had claimed that 25% nuns were unhappy in convents. Now, there's more embarrassment for the church with Sister Jesmi, once associated with the Congregation of Mother of Carmel under the Catholic Church, recounting her harrowing ecclesiastical life in the autobiography which, she says, forced her to leave the convent. The revelations could further rattle the clergy that's already in a spot with the Abhaya murder case."
