WomenSucideBomber| Girl handed over to mother, left for Pune silently

Published

on

Srinagar, Feb 3: Pune-based teenage girl who was detained by Jammu and Kashmir police on January 25 for allegedly being a suicide bomber has been silently handed over to her family.

Official sources told news agency GNS that whatever was alleged against her proved mere hoax and that she along with her mother left for Pune at 3:00 pm on Saturday. Her maternal uncle, who arrived with her mother, had already left for Pune few days back.

Sources further said that the girl was extensively questioned all these days during which she was in police captivity at Rambagh but nothing was proved against her.

They said it was a clear case of misinterpreting an intelligence input by Jammu and Kashmir police who were reportedly informed by central security agencies that a Pune-based girl had shifted her base to Valley and there was need to mount surveillance.

Additional Deputy General of Police Muneer Khan who is functioning as Inspector General of Police, Kashmir Range had stated that it would be premature to declare her suicide bomber when he was asked by the reporters at the time of girl’s arrest.

The misinterpretation of the input had led to heightened security across the Valley on January 26.

“Whatever was alleged against her proved hoax she was allowed to leave and she left along with her mother for Pune at 3:00 pm from Srinagar airport,” a police officer who wished not to be named confirmed.

Soon after the girl’s name was disclosed by Jammu Kashmir police as Sadiya Anwar Shaikh, the Maharashtra police in categorical terms said that there was no case registered ever against the girl in Pune, the second populous city of Maharaharata.

Talking to Srinagar-based news agency GNS, Joint Commissioner of Police, Law and Order Pune City, Ravindra Kadam had said that no case has been registered ever against the teenage girl who was arrested by police at Bijbehara.

“No case is registered against the girl (Sadiya Anwar Shaikh),” Kadam told news agency GNS when asked about reports suggesting that she was detained by police for alleged radicalization of youth in Pune.

He also responded in negative to the question whether Pune police had communicated to their counter parts in Kashmir regarding the girl travelling to Kashmir.

Asked whether JKP communicated to Pune police regarding the girl’s arrest, he said: “No”.

Maoist poster found in Odisha capital threatening to kill missing Kashmiri student

Published

on

Bhubaneswar | March 5 2018
A poster allegedly put up by the Maoists was found at Baramunda bus stand creating panic among locals here this morning.
The poster was put up on the wall under flyover with a message demanding the government to release top Maoist leader Sabyasachi Panda, who is currently lodged in jail, in seven days or else the Kashmiri student studying at Bhubaneswar AIIMS Suhail Aijaz, who is missing since Feb 9, will be killed.
The Maoists in the poster said that Suhail is in their custody. If the government fails to release Sabyasachi Panda, they will eliminate the Kashmiri student.
Also, the red rebels through the poster threatened explosions at Bhubaneswar railway station and police stations on March 11 if their demand is not met as soon as possible.
While there is no breakthrough in the missing Kashmiri student and a team of commissionerate police returned Bhubaneswar from Kolkata with clueless about him, the latest poster indicates Maoist link in connection with missing of Suhail, who is yet to be traced by police. The poster posed as a bigger challenge to the police, who are yet to clear the authenticity of the poster.
The twin city commissionerate police is investigating into the matter to find out alleged abduction of Suhail by Maoists and authenticity of the poster.
We recovered a handwritten poster and it is being investigated, said DCP Satyabrata Bhoi.
Normally, the Maoists put up the posters in their letterhead using red ink. However, this poster found at Baramunda bus stand was written in blue ink.
When asked to Sabyasachi Panda’s wife Subhashree alias Mili Panda about the poster, she refused any Maoist role behind putting up the poster at Baramunda bus stand.
She refuted the allegations that Sabyasachi’s supporters were behind the incident. She clearly said that her husband was never the cadre belonging to the banned CPI(Maoist), which has allegedly put up the poster on wall under flyover at Baramunda.
“Since my husband is facing trial and legal process in a series of cases, it is baseless to say that any of his supporters will do such thing to release him from jail,” Mili Panda said.
