New Delhi/Jammu: Who are Abu Saifullah and Abu Bilal named as bombers in the NIA chargesheet filed today in the September Delhi High Court blast case?

While NIA claimed that the two men suspected to be Pakistani nationals were the bombers, Jammu and Kashmir Police and central security agencies appear to be unaware about any such names.

A senior official of the J and K Home department said no such name has ever surfaced either through electronic interception or human intelligence available in the state.

The views of the Jammu and Kashmir home department were shared by the sleuths of various central security agencies who also said that at the time when the blast had taken place, there was no presence of any foreign terrorist in Kishtawar district of Jammu region.

In its over 1,062 page chargesheet, the NIA claimed that the two suspected bombers had carried out a recce of the Delhi High Court before carrying out the blasts.

However, the NIA chargesheet does not show as to when the two bombers had come to Delhi for carrying out the recce and how they travelled to the national capital carrying the explosive-laden briefcase which was planted on September 7, 2011. The explosion had left 15 persons dead and 79 injured.

NIA prepared a sketches of the two bombers with the help of Wasim Akram, one of the main accused, and Ammir Abbas Dev but the same has neither been shared with the state nor with central security agencies.

The chargesheet also traces the journey of the two bombers only till the bus stand in Kishtwar in Jammu region but apparently does not throw light as to how they arrived in the national capital to carry out the terror strike.
