Four of the ten terror suspects who were arrested by Delhi Police for their alleged links with the banned outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) were on Saturday released due to lack of adequate evidence, three days after being questioned by the anti-terrorism unit.
Jantakareporter.com had reported how most of those arrested were daily wage workers. Following our reports after interviews with the arrested people’s families, the home ministry had reportedly chided the Delhi police for exaggerating their claims JeM links.
According to PTI, of the four, three are residents of east Delhi’s Chand Bagh locality and the other from Ghaziabad’s Loni area. They were let off from the Special Cell’s Lodhi Colony office on Saturday evening.
They were reportedly freed after investigators said they did not find adequate evidence to prove their involvement in the suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed ring, which was busted earlier this week with the arrest of three youths and Improvised Explosive Device were recovered from their possession, police sources said.
One of the arrested youth’s sister had told jantakareporter.com that contrary to police’s claims there were no fires in their house and the burn mark on her brother’s hand was following the spillage of hot milk and not while handling explosives.
As many as 13 persons were picked up by the Special Cell after a late night operation on Tuesday. Of them, three have been arrested, four let off and six are still being questioned by the investigators.
