Mr. Singha Roy was hopeful that all relevant facts will now be revealed, and anyone found guilty will not be spared. He also emphasized that earlier one should have given due credence to Sunita's summit claims and not to the speculative analysis and verdicts of those who were not there and did not face such situation, and her claims should now be sympathetically reconsidered. "Finally this should be the authentic report, should be accepted by all, and no one should be spared and Sunita's summit claims should be sympathetically reconsidered," he said.
