With less than 24 hours after the formal arrest of two class XI students,the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and Jammu Kashmir Police have arrested two more students in Kishtwar town in connection with the bomb blast outside Delhi High Court,which killed 14 people and injured over 70 last week.
Sources identified both boys as Hilal Amin of Nagseni and Amir Abbas of near Government Degree College,both in Kishtwar.
Their arrests followed disclosures by the arrested Class XI students of Islamia Faridia Higher Secondary School Abid Hussain and Shariq Ahmed. The police have taken their remand from the Court of Principal District and Sessions Judge.
Apart from these four boys,cops are already questioning the Global Internet cybercafé owner Mehmood Aziz Khawaja and his manager Ashwani Kumar in the matter as the terror e-mail received sent to media houses soon after the blast was traced to Kishtwar town.
According to PTI reports,security agencies believe Hilal Amin is a HuJI operative.
Amin is understood to have told investigators that an email claiming responsibility on behalf of the HuJI was sent on his directions,sources said today.
Amin,who was picked up in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kishtwar district,is alleged to be an operative of terror outfit Harkat-ul-Jehadi-al-Islami (HuJI).
Security agencies are interrogating him,they said.
