New Delhi, Jul 24: The BJP has demanded detailed enquiry into the letters that Indian MPs have written to US president Barack Obama against issuing visa to Narendra Modi.




The demand comes in the wake of a few MPs denying writing any such letter despite their names figuring in the list of those who have written to US president.

Some of these MPs have alleged that their signatures have been forged in these letters.

"More than half of the MPs (who are signatories) have denied writing such a letter.  It is important to catch those who forged signatures," said BJP spokesperson Prakash Javdekar.

CPM leader Sitaram Yechury had alleged that his signature that appears on the controversial letter appeared to be a ‘cut-and-paste job'.

The Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC) had re-faxed the letters signed by Indian MPs, originally written to President Obama late last year,  to the White House on Sunday.
