Details of Noida encounter to be sent to Pakistan

January 27, 2009 23:18 IST

India is expected to hand over to Pakistan details of the two suspected terrorists who were killed by the Uttar Pradesh [Images] Anti-Terrrorism Squad in an encounter two days ago.     

The Uttar Pradesh police will soon send information relating to the slain terrorists, including details of a passport recovered from one of them, to the Ministry of External Affairs for on passing to Pakistan for verification, sources
in the ATS told PTI on Tuesday.
The two suspected terrorists, identified as Farooq of Okara in Pakistan and Abu Ismail of Rawalkot, were gunned down by the ATS while allegedly trying to sneak into Delhi [Images] on the intervening night of January 25.
Police said it had recovered a passport from Farooq which bears the name of Ali Ahmed, a resident of Rahimyaar
Khan in Pakistan. Police have also recovered multiple identity cards and diaries with phone numbers.
"The details are being sent to Pakistan with the hope that the authorities there would check up and verify about them," an ATS source said.
While post-mortems have been conducted, the viscera of the slain terrorists have been preserved for any future examination including DNA tests to establish their identities.
A case has been filed against the duo of waging war against the country and various sections of Unlawful Activities
Prevention Act, Arms Act, Explosive Act and Foreigners Act.
The UP police is investigating as to which group the two terrorists belonged to and whether they had any local contacts
in the state.
The police are trying to find out how the two reached India, a high-ranking ATS official said without divulging details.
