Srinagar,May17: The family of Syed Liyaqat Shah Friday expressed happiness over the court decision, while as the National Investigation Agency (NIA) officials said that they carried out investigation impartially.
“We are happy with decision of his release. Truth finally prevailed,” Liyaqat’s wife, Akhter-u-Nissa, told Greater Kashmir over telephone. Nissa was accompanying Liyaqat at the time of his arrest on March 22. “I have not been informed officially about my husband’s release,” she added.
Nissa said that Liyaqat’s brother Syed Inayat Shah is camping in New Delhi from last four days. “We are thankful to J&K Government for pursuing our case,” she said adding that besides Government, J&K Police also helped them by bringing out the facts to fore.
Nissa said that truth prevailed at last. “Since the arrest of my husband, we were saying that he is being framed. Investigations by NIA revealed the truth,” she said. “We are happy that we are meeting again and will live a happy life now.”
Officiating Director General (DG) NIA, T Wasan said that investigations into Liyaqat’s arrest will continue. “Till now, we have carried investigations impartially and on fast-track basis,” Wasan told Greater Kashmir over telephone adding that in future investigations would go on same lines.
He said Liyaqat is still in their custody. “I have not read the court order yet. Once the order reaches me, it will be decided whether Liyaqat would be handed over to J&K Police or would be handed over to the family,” he said and expressed his happiness over speedy probe into the case.
Police here said that they are not in a position yet to say whether Liyaqat would be handed over to them or not. “At this stage we can’t say anything,” a senior police officer said here adding that things will be clear in a day or two.”
Liyaqat was arrested on 22 March by the special cell of Delhi Police, who claimed to have foiled a Fidayeen attack in the national capital after apprehending a Hizbul Mujahideen militant from near Gorakhpur in UP. He was accompanied by his wife Akhter-u-Nissa and deaf and dumb daughter.
However, family had said that he was returning from Muzaffarabad under Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s ‘Militant Rehabilitation Policy.
His arrests had created uproar in J&K Legislative Assembly, forcing Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to take up the matter with Ministry of Home Affairs. It is only after the efforts of Chief Minister that case was handed over NIA.
