Parliament attack: Sketches of conspirators released

Fourteen days after terrorists struck at Parliament House, the Delhi police on Thursday released the photograph of Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Maulana Masood Azhar. They also released sketches of the outfit's leader in India, Ghazi Baba, and his close aide Tariq Ahmed, declaring them as the main conspirators of the attack.

The police also announced that anybody providing information about the trio would be "rewarded handsomely".

Azhar, along with Ghazi Baba and Tariq, have been responsible for planning, supply of arms and ammunition, finance and providing other logistical support to the terrorists who launched the attack on Parliament on December 13, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Ashok Chand said.

"Azhar, Ghazi and Tariq are wanted for conspiring and abetting the attack on Parliament," he said. The sketches of Ghazi, a Pakistani national, and Tariq, a Kashmiri, have been prepared on the basis of the description given by Mohammad Afzal, the outfit's pointman in Delhi who was arrested in Kashmir soon after the attack.

The photograph of Azhar, who was among the three terrorists released by the government in exchange for the hostages of the hijacked Indian Airlines plane in 1999, was taken from a police file.

Azhar, who floated the Jaish-e-Mohammed soon after his release, is considered to be a pampered terrorist of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence. Two kidnappings and a hijack were staged for his release from Indian jails, according to sources.
