Delhi blasts: Reward announced for wanted K’taka man



New Delhi: Delhi Police today announced Rs three lakh reward for catching a man from Karnataka who allegedly helped Indian Mujahideen terrorists by providing explosives for making bombs, which were later used to trigger serial blasts in the capital two years ago.

Besides this, police also increased the reward amount on three suspected terrorists of the same outfit involved in the serial blasts from Rs one lakh to Rs three lakh.

In his order, city Police Commissioner Y S Dadwal announced the Rs three lakh reward on Sharukh, who allegedly supplied the explosive materials used in the bombs that exploded in Delhi on September 13, 2008.

A resident of Karnataka's Udupi, Sharukh's alleged role came to light during the interrogation of another accused Shahzad, who was arrested in February this year after his escape from Batla House after an encounter, a senior police official said.

Dadwal also announced the increase in reward amount on Mohd Sajid (22), Mirza Sadab Baig (25) and Mohd Khalid (25).

These youths hail from Uttar Pradesh's Azamgarh.

Sajid is also believed to have escaped from Batla House during the encounter with police on September 19, 2008. Baig was a resident of Batla House.
