3 declared absconders hold key to Delhi HC blast: PC
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Oct 31: The probe into Delhi High Court blast seems to have come to a dead end as Union Home Minister P Chidambaram today suggested that the three Hizbul Mujahideen men, declared as absconders, hold the key to the entire conspiracy hatched in the case.
Talking to reporters here after presenting his ministry's monthly report card for October, Chidambaram was asked whether the case had been solved after the arrest of the three people including a medical student Wasim Akram and two others.
"Whether the case has been solved or not, is a matter of opinion. The fact is that three key persons have been arrested and they have pointed to three other persons.
"We have put out a reward for these three persons and all the agencies are looking for these three persons. Only when these three are arrested, interrogated and their statements are recorded, the agency will be in a position to say whether the case has been solved or not," he said and added that at the moment "we are looking for the three persons."
NIA recently announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh each for any information leading to arrest of Junaid Akram, brother of Wasim, Amir Ali and Sheikh Hussain Sheikh, all belonging to Hizbul Mujahideen terror outfit as the probe agency believes that all the three played "crucial role in the conspiracy which led to the blast at the Delhi High Court" on September seven in which 15 people were killed.
Besides Wasim Akram, NIA has arrested Abid Hussain and Hafiz Aamir Abbas Dev and also recorded their confessional statements before a magistrate recently. The three are alleged to have been be involved in sending emails immediately after the blast outside the High Court.
