Home Ministry may order probe into Delhi arrest

Taking note of the conflicting versions of the Delhi police and the Jammu and Kashmir police, the home ministry is likely to order a probe on circumstances leading to the arrest of suspected Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Liyaqat Shah.

MHA has taken note of the version presented by the Jammu and Kashmir government on Liyaqat Shah and it is looking into the facts presented by both the Delhi Police and J&K police.

‘A decision on whether an inquiry is warranted will be taken after scrutiny of both the versions,’ union home secretary RK Singh said. The special cell of the Delhi Police has claimed it had foiled a ‘fidayeen strike’ in the capital with the arrest of Shah, who, they claim, is a Hizbul terrorist.

However, J&K Police has supported claims of Shah’s family that he was a former militant who had surrendered at the Sanauli check post on the Nepal border and was part of a group returning from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir as part of the rehabilitation policy of J&K government.
