CBI nails cops for framing two men as terrorists

A MAJOR embarrassment is in store for Delhi Police’s special cell as the CBI has finalised a report which recommends action against three sub- inspectors, who allegedly framed two men as Al- Badr terrorists and planted RDX on them.

Sources said the CBI’s closure report, filed in the Delhi High Court on November 11, has called for the discharge of the two men, Mohammad Moarif Qamar and Irshad Ali, who are languishing in Tihar Jail since February 2006.

The CBI was asked to conduct a probe last year after allegations that the two men were police informers framed in a false case by the Delhi Police in collusion with the Intelligence Bureau ( IB). The report conclusively establishes the duo were informers for the IB and Delhi Police.

Refusing to comment on the case, the CBI spokesperson said: “ The CBI had filed the closure report in Delhi High Court on November 11. The matter is subjudice. The case was transferred to the agency by the high court on May 9, 2006.”

In its initial report submitted in April, the CBI had hinted at the same conclusion but the court gave it more time to prepare a comprehensive report.

“ To prove the bona fide credentials of these two men, I had given an undertaking in court that we will not apply for bail for them till the CBI files its closure report and the court honourably discharges them,” Sufain Siddiqui, the counsel for Qamar and Ali, said.

“ It is a big victory for us and we hope the two men will walk free when the case comes up for hearing on November 27,” he added.

In its report, the CBI also wants sanction to initiate proceedings against the three policemen.

Qamar and Ali are from Jammu and Kashmir but live in Delhi. The CBI probe has shown that Qamar had been missing from his Bhajanpura home since December 22, 2005, and Ali went missing from his Sultanpuri home 10 days before Qamar.

On February 9, 2006, the special cell had shown that the two men had been arrested with 2 kg of RDX and pistols from Mubarak Chowk on G. T. Karnal Road in North Delhi and both were Al- Badr militants.

Various special cell officers interrogated by the CBI had given contradictory statements to the investigating agency.

It is indeed tough to find these kind of news in mainstream media!!
