Kishtwar: With less than 24 hours after the official arrest of 2 class XI students, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and Jammu Kashmir Police have arrested 2 more students in Kishtwar town in connection with the bomb blast outside Delhi High Court, which killed 14 people and injured over 70 last week.
Sources recognized both boys as Hilal Amin of Nagseni and Amir Abbas of near Government Degree College, both in Kishtwar.
Their arrests followed revelation by the arrested Class XI students of Islamia Faridia Higher Secondary School, Abid Hussain and Shariq Ahmed. The police have taken their remand from the Court of Principal District and Sessions Judge.
Despite these 4 boys, cops are already questioning the Global Internet cybercafé owner Mehmood Aziz Khawaja and his manager Ashwani Kumar in the matter as the terror e-mail received sent to media houses soon after the blast was traced to Kishtwar town.
According to the reports, security agencies consider Hilal Amin is a HuJI operative. Amin is understood to have told investigators that an email claiming responsibility on behalf of the HuJI was sent on his directions, sources said today.
Amin, who was picked up in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kishtwar district, is assumed to be an operative of terror group Harkat-ul-Jehadi-al-Islami (HuJI). Security agencies are interrogating him, they said.
