Zeenews Bureau

New Delhi: Union Home Secretary RK Singh said on Wednesday that the probe into the Delhi High Court is "progressing" and confirmed that some suspects have been arrests from Jammu and Kashmir.

Speaking to reporters, Singh said, “"We have clues. There is progress also. But we do not want to disclose whatever progress we have made as it will hamper the investigation.” He however did not elaborate on the direction of the probe.

When questioned about media reports about the busting of a terror module in Kishtwar in Jammu and Kashmir, Singh said, "Some people have been arrested and they are being interrogated.”

Meanwhile, a news agency has claimed that two men have been arrested from Kishtwar and has identified them as Abid and Sharik.

They have been arrested for sending emails shortly after the Delhi High Court blasts.

The probe is being headed by the National Investigation Agency (NIA), assisted by Delhi Police.

The NIA had yesterday raised the reward money from Rs five lakh to Rs 10 lakh for anybody giving information about the perpetrators of the blast.

The blast that took place outside Gate No 5 of the Delhi High Court last Wednesday killed 13 people and injured over 90.
