Liyaqat will be freed if probe finds him innocent, says govt

Suspected Hizbul Mujahideen militant Liyaqat Shah, who was arrested by the Delhi Police, will be released if he is found to have come from PoK with the genuine intention to surrender, Union home secretary RK Singh said on Tuesday.

Singh said the National Investigation Agency (NIA), which was recently handed over the probe in the case, will investigate ‘where the truth lies’ amid conflicting versions by the Delhi police and Jammu and Kashmir police on his arrest from near the Indo-Nepal border.

‘The case (of Liyaqat) has been given to NIA to investigate. They will investigate and they will find out where the truth lies. Whether he (Liyaqat) was coming for genuinely surrendering or whether there was some game behind will all be clarified.
