Two terror suspects set free by Bangalore police
Bangalore: Two of the 11 suspected terrorists, who were arrested by the Bangalore police nearly six months back, have been released following a court order that condemned their wrongful detention by the investigating authorities.
Reports, Tuesday, claimed that journalist Muthi-ur Rehman Siddiqui and Syed Yusuf Nalaband, who were arrested in September 2012 along with nine others, were set free by the Bangalore police after a hectic legal battle challenging their detention.
The Bangalore police had then claimed they were plotting attacks targeting MPs, MLAs and journalists for anti-Islamic writing.
The two have welcomed the court’s order and thanked the God that they have been able to come out clean.
Human rights activists have hailed the court order as a big victory in their long legal battle against the investigating agencies for wrongfully arresting innocent people.
"We thank the NIA for bringing out the truth," human rights campaigner Irshaad was quoted as saying. Meanwhile, the lawyers of Siddiqui and Nalaband have decided to continue their legal battle to secure bail for the nine others arrested in 2012.
