Questions raised on bombers of Delhi HC blast

Last Updated: Tuesday, March 13, 2012 - 21:51

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.
