Delhi blast: NIA at a step closer to the conspirators

delhi blast investigation New Delhi: NIA and security agencies have detained Hilal Amin a suspected HuJI operative for allegedly sending a terror email in the aftermath of the September 7 blast outside the Delhi High Court. Amin told the investigators that an email claiming responsibility of the blast was sent on his directions. Amin, who has been detained in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kishtwar district, is alleged to be an operative of terror outfit Harkat-ul-Jehadi-al-Islami (HuJI).

National Investigation Agency (NIA) claims that they are a step closer to the blast conspirators. The NIA claims that they are now aware of the principles behind the conspiracy and that they have been able to recreate the exact sequence of events prior to the terror strike. The NIA have reasons to believe that the conspiracy was hatched in J&K and that 7 people were involved in the blast.

Of the seven conspirators one is said to be from south India. Manhunt has been launched in various parts of India. Although all these revelations are considered to be a major breakthrough in the case, the NIA is yet to identify the module behind the terror strike, the precise terror group and the identity of the seven individuals. The investigating agency stated that there is intense intermingling between terror groups that it is difficult to pin point who is behind the blast.

Meanwhile investigators made some arrest in connection with the Delhi High Court blast case and the suspects are being questioned, Union Home Secretary RK Singh said yesterday.

He said National Investigation Agency (NIA), which is probing the case, has got some clues and there is progress. He, however, refused to divulge details. “Some people have been arrested and they are being interrogated,” Singh told reporters when asked about the progress of the case.

“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 said on sidelines of a function here.

The agency said that their hunch and hypothesis has to be backed with more factual evidence to confirm the details of the blast.
