New Delhi: Delhi
Police Sunday released the sketch of a man whom the arrested
suspected Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist was to contact to plan a 'fidayeen'
(suicide) terror attack in the capital.
According to Special Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) S.N.
Shrivastava, the man, aged around 25-30, had brought the arms and
explosives, to be used in the attack, to a guest house here.
Police said the sketch was prepared on the basis of statements
given by the guest house employees and the CCTV footage.
"The man could be seen in the footage of close circuit television
camera installed inside the guest house in central Delhi," said an
Delhi Police Friday claimed to have averted the terror attack
following the arrest of Syed Liyaqat Shah, 47, a resident of
Dardpora village in Kashmir's Kupwara district, from Uttar
Pradesh's Gorakhpur March 20.
According to police, Shah was told by his Pakistan handlers to
contact a person, related to Hizbul Mujahideen cadre, in a guest
house in Delhi's Jama Masjid area who was to provide him arms and
ammunition for carrying out the attack during the Holi festival.
Going by his confession, police were able to recover an AK-56
assault rifle, three hand grenades, two magazines -- each carrying
30 round cartridges, 220 grams of explosives, a Delhi map and a
Delhi Police Saturday denied claims of Shah's family that Shah,
47, was going to surrender in Jammu and Kashmir under the state
government's rehabilitation policy.
