New Delhi, Feb 9 (IANS) A city court will announce its verdict on the fate of two Kashmiri youth, arrested by the Delhi Police as terrorists, on Feb 13. A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) report has said the two men were framed by the police.

Additional Sessions Judge S.K. Gautam Monday said the decision to initiate proceedings against police officials accused of framing the two men would also be taken on the next date.

The Special Cell arrested Irshad Ali and Mohammed Moarif Qamar Feb 9, 2006, from the G.T. Karnal Road bus terminal and said they were Al-Badr terrorists. The police claimed that pistols, RDX, detonators and ammunition were recovered from them.

The CBI in its closure report last year submitted that the two men were innocent and were wrongly framed. The investigating agency came to the conclusion that the two were working as police informers.

Meanwhile, Tihar jail authorities also informed the court that action has been taken against some inmates who entered into a minor scuffle with Ali.
