Despite raids, Ghazi Baba eludes dragnet

Onkar Singh in New Delhi

Despite numerous joint raids conducted by the Delhi police and the Jammu and Kashmir police in various parts of the Kashmir valley, the chief of Jaish-e-Mohammed in India, Ghazi Baba, continues to evade arrest.

On Friday, a Delhi police team had taken Mohammed Afzal, one of the key co-conspirators involved in the terrorist attack on parliament, to Jammu and Kashmir to identify the places, which he had visited in the last nine months prior to the attack.

"We would know the results when the team comes back from Jammu and Kashmir," Ashok Chand deputy commissioner special branch told rediff.com on Wednesday morning.

According to the information made available by the Delhi police Ghazi Baba had three meetings with Mohammed Afzal.

"Two of these meetings took place in Pahalgoan and one in Srinagar," said a senior officer connected with the case.

Mohammed Afzal told his interrogators that he had to wait for one and a half months before he was allowed to meet Ghazi Baba.

"He is a hyper active youngman, who sleeps very little and is constantly on the move," Mohammed Afzal had earlier told a TV station.

"During his first meeting, Ghazi Baba gave a religious discourse to Afzal on the need to wage jihad against India. The third and final meeting which took place in Srinagar perhaps clinched the issue and convinced Mohommed Afzal to join the terrorists in their heinous design," said a Delhi police officer.

Meanwhile, the Delhi police claimed to have busted yet another spy ring with the arrest of Sami-ud-din alias Hazi.

"He was arrested from Delhi. He is forty-one years old and is the resident of Muzzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh. We recovered lot of incriminating and secret documents from him at the time of his arrest," Ashok Chand told rediff.com.
