NIA denies reports on Delhi blast leads

Thursday September 15, 2011 11:07:19 PM, IANS

New Delhi: Terming the probe into the Sep 7 Delhi High Court blasts as "delicately poised", the National Investigation Agency (NIA) Thursday denied various news items regarding the case and appealed for an end to "speculative" reports.

In a press statement, NIA Director General S.C. Sinha termed all such reports as "speculative".

He also appealed for "caution" as such media reports are likely to cause "an irreparable damage" to the ongoing investigation.

According to sources, barring the arrest of two class 11 students of Kishtwar, who had reportedly sent the emails claiming responsibility for the terror attack, the NIA denied all other reports appearing in the media related to case.

News reports had also mentioned arrest of a teenager student from Jharkhand's Pakur district from Kolkata for sending two emails, threatening to carry out more attacks, including one on a shopping mall.

According to the reports, the two emails -- both in the name of Chotoo of the Indian Mujahideen --- were traced to the DAV school student's home after New Delhi approached the US for assistance.

However, earlier in the day, Jammu and Kashmir Police and NIA teams arrested two more people from Kishtwar town for their links to an email that claimed terror group Harkat-ul-Jehadi-Islami (HuJI) had triggered last week's Delhi High Court blast, sources said. An official said details of the case will be shared at an appropriate time.

The police sources said that the two -- Amir Abbas Dev and Hilal Asmin alias Hafiz -- were arrested on the basis of disclosure made by two Class 11 students of the town taken into custody Wednesday.

Police sources said that the disclosures made by the two students were being corroborated. "This is a big lead but no conclusions need to be drawn at this moment," an officer associated with the investigations told IANS.

Inspector General of Police, Jammu zone, Dilbag Singh said: "Relevant details of the case shall be shared with the media at appropriate time officially."

He said "speculative publication/telecasts are seriously hampering the investigation of the case and are not in the national interest".

The email claiming responsibility of the Sep 7 Delhi blast to the terrorist outfit originated from Kishtwar, 230 km from Jammu. Seven people were detained soon after the email was sent.

The email warned of more attacks if 2001 parliament attack convict, Afzal Guru, now on death row, was hanged. The blast killed 14 people and injured more than 90.
