Delhi police under CBI scanner; two top cops to be quizzed
December 04, 2007 17:16 IST
In what could be a lapse by the elite Special Cell of the Delhi police, the Central Bureau of Investigation will be summoning two of its senior officers for questioning in a case where two people were allegedly framed as terrorists from Jammu and Kashmir [Images].
While the CBI remained tight-lipped about the case, sources in the investigating agency said that questioning of the two senior officials was warranted as the agency had found some proof to establish that the two were police informers.
The case pertains to the arrest of Mohammed Moarif Qamar and Irshad Ali, who were alleged to be militants of Al-Badr and were arrested by the Special Cell from Mubarak Chowk on G T Karnal Road in north Delhi on February 2006.
While nailing several aspects of the much-claimed probe of the Delhi police, the CBI, in its investigations, pointed out that statements of the sleuths of the Special Cell contradicted each other.
Some of the low-rung officials in the Intelligence Bureau would also be questioned by the CBI. The agency's counsel had also informed the Delhi High Court last week that the questioning of the officials was necessary to corroborate the evidence gathered by the CBI.
