'Investigating agencies illegally detaining Muslim youths'

Sunday February 24, 2013 09:41:54 PM, Special Correspondent

Hyderabad: Civil liberties Monitoring Committee has on Sunday alleged that the investigating agencies are detaining Muslim youths in the name of investigating the Dilsukhnagar bombings. It also accused the investigating agencies of violating the Supreme Court guidelines for investigations.


"Civil liberties Monitoring Committee is continuously receiving the information about the illegal arrest and detention of Muslim youth from various parts of the Hyderabad city. This committee feels that immediately after the completion of media trial now Muslim youth are the target of police", it said in a statement.


"Police investigation of bomb blast is diverted and concentrated only on Muslim youth. This committee came to know that the main reason for this is pressure from the media channels about the questioning whether any arresting is done till now or not", it added.


"From the different parts of the city, Muslim youth are picked up. Civil Liberties started receiving this news from the late night itself. In the morning more arrests took place", it said.


"All these arrests are taking place with the advantage of investigation of Dilsukhnagar bomb blasts. on the name of investigation innocent Muslims are being targeted. Many teams are formed to investigate these bomb blasts and every team is investigating in its own way as if the bomb blasts are done by these Muslim youth only", it said.

"Those youth whose lives were destroyed on the name of Makkah Masjid bomb blast investigation are again made scapegoats and targeted in which Arshad, Raheem, Kareem, Rayees, Azmath and so many others are detained on the name of investigation. The manner of police investigation is illegal", it said.


"The guidelines of the Supreme Court for the Investigation are being completely violated by the police. For example, yesterday many youth were picked up by the police and detained illegally and today morning the team of task force reached the house of Rayees at Hashimabad and picked him and forced him to sit in private Innova car, then reached the Chandrayangutta bridge and made calls to Junaid to come there saying that they have to speak to him", the statement alleged.


"And then they asked Rayees to call Junaid to come near the bridge. Junaid denied to go there and said that whatever they have to ask should be in legal manner. If they want to speak something they can come to home but Task Force resorted to threatening and cut the phone. After this Junaid is feeling that he is in most danger", it said.

"This is not just the matter of Junaid but many other youth in Hyderabad as well who are living life of threat. They are again remembering the police action of 2007 where hundreds of Muslim youth were targeted. Even that time same SIT was formed and the main criminals were not found", the statement said.


"At this time also the government has formed Special Investigation Team under this team various sub-teams are formed and still police is clueless about the real culprits. Under these circumstances, Muslim youth are the soft target of police and their life and liberty is at stake", the statement said.

"Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee demands the Andhra Pradesh government to dissolve the Special Investigation Team and the case should be handed over and investigated only by the National Investigation Agency", it said.


"This committee demands the state government to release illegally detained Muslim youth and warns that if this continues the government will face the consequences", the statement said.
