New Delhi: The Delhi Police was specifically told on Wednesday by a court here not to permit any other probe agency to interrogate journalist Syed Mohammed Ahmad Kazmi, arrested for his alleged role in the February 13 bombing of an
Israeli diplomat car.
The court directed the police in the wake of allegations
that Israel`s intelligence agency Mossad was interrogating
"This is expected that the Special Cell will not permit
other investigating agencies to make the applicant (Kazmi) an
experimental block," Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav
The court, however, said the police was not barred from
sharing information with other investigating agencies.
"I do not see any bar on the investigating agency (Delhi
Police) sharing information of the interrogation of the
applicant (Kazmi) with the investigating agencies of other
countries, particularly of Israel and Iran, as India is a
signatory to the UN Convention of Prevention and Suppression
of Terrorism (Implementation of Security Council Resolution),
2007," the judge said.
The court`s order came on Kazmi`s plea, alleging that he
was being "interrogated by officials of other investigating
agencies, like Mossad of Israel, RAW, IB and others".
The Delhi Police, however, had denied the allegation,
saying so far no agency of any other country, particularly
Mossad, has come to interrogate him and application has been
filed merely on apprehension.
Kazmi`s counsel had told the court that he has been made a
"guinea pig" on whom every investigating agency had been
experimenting in this case, even as his custody has been given
only to the Delhi Police. Kazmi was arrested on March 7 and was remanded in police custody for 20 days.
