November 13th, 2008 - 12:41 am ICT by IANS  

New Delhi, Nov 12 (IANS) The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Wednesday told a city court that two men from Jammu and Kashmir who were arrested by the Delhi Police on terror charges were innocent and sought action against three officials for their illegal detention.The CBI Wednesday filed a closure report in the court, which will hear the case Nov 27.

In its report, CBI also demanded action against three police inspectors, Ravinder Tyagi, Vinay Tyagi and Subhash Bhatt.

The investigating agency was dealing with a case in which Mohammed Arif Qamar and Irshad Ali, both from Kashmir, were arrested by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police from Mubarak Chowk on G.T. Karnal Road in north Delhi in February 2006.

Both were alleged to be militants of the Al-Badr group.

In its preliminary inquiry, CBI questioned several aspects of the police probe and pointed out that statements of Special Cell sleuths contradicted one another.

The CBI investigations, as suggested in the first status report, had clearly pointed at a nexus between the Intelligence Bureau and the Special Cell in framing Qamar and Ali.
