New Delhi: Four of the 10 suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) members, detained five days ago, have been freed due to lack of any evidence of ties to the banned Pakistan-based terror outfit and involvement in any terror activities, Delhi Police said on Saturday.
The ten suspects were detained on Tuesday night when a JeM module, planning bombings in crowded places likes malls in Delhi and National Capital Region (NCR), was busted and three terrorists arrested.
Police said that three of the four released suspects are the residents of Chand Bagh area in east Delhi while one belongs to Loni in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad.
“We have released four JeM suspects in lack of evidence indicating their relation with the terror outfit and involvement in any terror acts,” said a police officer said.
The suspects were let off from the Lodhi Colony office of Delhi Police’s Special Cell this evening.
The Special Cell, an anti-terror unit of the 80,000 strong force, had busted the self-styled JeM module in a raid conducted on Tuesday night.
Three JeM terrorists Sajid, Sameer Ahmed and Shakir Ansari were arrested from Chand Bagh, Loni and Deoband in Uttar Pradesh respectively, under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), and the 10 other suspects detained for questioning.
