Delhi blast: Two more held from KishtwarSeptember 15th, 2011 - 11:25 pm ICT by IANS
Jammu, Sep 15 (IANS) Jammu and Kashmir Police and the National Investigation Agency teams Thursday arrested two more people from Kishtwar town of Kashmir for their links to an email that claimed terror group Harkat-ul-Jehadi-Islami (HuJI) had triggered last week’s Delhi High Court blast, sources said. An official said details of the case will be shared at an appropriate time.
The police sources said that the two — Amir Abbas Dev and Hilal Asmin alias Hafiz — were arrested on the basis of disclosure made by two Class 11 students of the town taken into custody Wednesday.
Police sources said that the disclosures made by the two students were being corroborated. “This is a big lead but no conclusions need to be drawn at this moment,” an officer associated with the investigations told IANS.
Inspector General of Police, Jammu zone, Dilbag Singh said: “Relevant details of the case shall be shared with the media at appropriate time officially.”
He said “speculative publication/telecasts are seriously hampering the investigation of the case and are not in the national interest”.
The email claiming responsibility of the Sep 7 Delhi blast to the terrorist outfit originated from Kishtwar, 230 km from Jammu. Seven people were detained soon after the email was sent.
The email warned of more attacks if 2001 parliament attack convict, Afzal Guru, now on death row, was hanged. The blast killed 14 people and injured more than 90.
Police Wednesday moved the district and sessions court in Kishtwar to seek remand of the two Class 11 students, who were among the seven detained for their alleged role in sending the email. For reasons of law, names of both students who are juveniles cannot be disclosed.
The court sent the two youths to 10 days in police custody.
