Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan addressed the media after he got a clean chit in the 25-year-old Bofors case, yesterday.

Big B on Wednesday said that he was relieved after the main whistle-blower in the Bofors scandal revealed that the Bollywood superstar's name was planted by Indian investigators in the case but added the clean chit has come "too late".

Reacting to the news, Bachchan, revered as a demigod by many in India, said, "My family and I are happy to note the statement made by Former Swedish Police Head investigating the Bofors - India Gun deal. Mr Lindstorm has stated that we were innocent and that there was never ever any evidence to indicate our involvement. The interview indicates that it took Mr. Lindstorm 25 years to come out with the truth. For us as a family that has borne the humiliation and insults for the past 25 years this comes as an vindication of our stand."

"What has been most disturbing for me has been the pain of insinuation that my ageing parents had to bear during their lifetime. What has also been most alarming has been the statement given by the Police Head that my name was "planted" deliberately when he had indeed, already through his investigation, not found us guilty," he added.

"When the accusations were made my family and I moved the London courts and proved our innocence. We won our case and were delighted that the truth had eventually been justified. But, for the former Police Head to have not stated then what he always knew, is most surprising. The abuse, humiliation and the castigation that our family bore for 25 years has now been vindicated, finally."
