Escape of terrorists: Heads expected to roll in Delhi Police
New Delhi: Heads may roll in the Delhi Police
after three Pakistani terrorists escaped from its custody and
are still at large even as its chief left it to the Centre to
decide which agency was responsible for the embarrassing
The Union Home Ministry was awaiting a "detailed report"
called for from all the agencies concerned before what sources
said any action could be contemplated.
Commissioner of Delhi police Y S Dadwal said a probe by
his force is underway but noted it is only the government
which will now clarify which agency was responsible.
Addressing a press conference, Dadwal said a report
sought by Home Ministry has been sent. He, however, refused to
share the contents saying, "That is an internal affair."
Dadwal also refused to comment on the claims of the
FRRO (Foreigners` Regional Registration Registration Office)
that the custody of the three terrorists were always the
responsibility of special branch of the Delhi police.
"I don`t want to say anything. We have sent our report
to the government. The government will make matters clear. A
magisterial enquiry, set up by the Lt Governor, will also make
matters clear," Dadwal said.
The three Pakistani nationals arrested in connection with
blasts near the Red Fort nine years ago and due to be deported
to their country on their completion of jail term escaped last
Friday leaving the authorities red-faced.
Abdul Razzak, Mohammed Sadiq and Rafaqat Ali escaped
while being escorted to a hospital for treatment by Meghalaya
police personnel on deputation to the Delhi Police`s Special
Asked whether any responsibility was being fixed, Dadwal
said, "Yes. We are alive to the matter since the very beginning
and we are looking at. We will take action.
