New Delhi: Three personnel of Maharashtra`s
elite Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS), who had gone to summon 13/7
Mumbai blasts accused Naquee Ahmed`s brother, Taquee, were
today detained by Delhi Police.

Sources said the ATS sleuths had come to Taquee`s place
here with a notice seeking his appearance before them in
Mumbai in connection with the blasts probe.

The trio arrived at the residence of Taquee and asked him
to accompany him to Mumbai for questioning as he had failed to
appear on previous summons.

Taquee asked them to have a presence of local police if
they wanted to detain him following which the ATS men
allegedly started hitting him.

This prompted the family of Taquee to call a PCR van
which came within minutes. The three ATS men were whisked away
to Okhla Police station where they were detained by the police
as they had not informed the local police before operating in
their jurisdiction.

According to the family of Taquee, a complaint was filed
before the local police that he was facing threat from ATS
Maharashtra besides illegal trespassing and physical assault.

Taquee`s brother Naquee was arrested by the ATS for being
allegedly involved in the 13/7 bombings, a charge contested by
the family who said he was working as an informer for Delhi
Police and Intelligence Bureau and was helping them in
locating Yaseen Bhatkal.
