Delhi court tells police to produce alleged terroristsDecember 1st, 2008 - 9:49 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Dec 1 (IANS) A Delhi court Monday asked the police to produce before it two Kashmiris allegedly framed as Al Badr terrorists by the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Delhi Police’s Special Cell.The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which investigated the case, had said in its final report Nov 13, that charges against Irshad Ali and Muarif Quamar were baseless and should be dropped.
Additional Sessions Judge S.K. Gautam directed the police to produce the two in the court Dec 15, the next date of hearing in the case.
Questioning the role of some Delhi Police officers in the incident, the CBI charged sub-inspectors Ravinder Tyagi, Subhash Vats and Vinay Tyagi with framing the duo.
The CBI’s final report says Sub-Inspector Vinay Tyagi prepared the reports of the recoveries allegedly made from Ali and Qamar and these were also signed by Vats and Tyagi.
Another loophole uncovered by CBI was that though the two were shown to be arrested while alighting from a Jammu and Kashmir state transport bus in Delhi Feb 9, 2006, the two tickets, planted on them by the police, were of a day later (Feb 10, 2006).
Qamar and Ali, both from Kashmir, were arrested by the police from Mukarba Chowk on G.T. Karnal Road in north Delhi in February 2006.
