‘Bad management decisions hampered probe’

Toronto: A poisonous work atmosphere and bad management decisions hampered the Canadian police’s investigation into the 1985 bombing of Air India’s Kanishka airliner, a former official said.

Testifying before the Air India Inquiry commission, Staff Sergeant (retd.) Robert Solvason said he quit the probe team in frustration over personal conflicts with his superiors and failure to follow critical leads. Mr. Solvason said not enough effort was made to develop key sources who might have shed light on the downing of Air India Flight 182 that killed 329 people. — PTI
