Click here: Dawn – Indian sleuths framed two Muslims, says report

India’s federal police are investigating elite sleuths for apparently faking the identities of two police informers as Kashmiri militants because the police were required to produce results in the aftermath of a major bombing spree in this city. Zeenews said on Sunday that the CBI investigations into the arrest of two persons last year described as Al Badr militants of Jammu and Kashmir has pointed to serious loopholes. Some officials may get into trouble over an apparent “fabrication” of evidence.

While the CBI officially maintained silence, Zeenews quoted sources within the agency as saying that the case of two persons — Mohammed Moarif Quamar and Irshad Ali — the alleged militants arrested near New Delhi in February last year — had been taken over by the agency.The agency was probing the role of sleuths from the intelligence bureau, who figured during its preliminary enquiry initiated at the directions of the Delhi High Court, Zeenews said.

The CBI has alleged that the evidence gathered against Quamar and Ali, who had been working as police informers, was framed by the Special Cell officials, desperate to show results after the blasts in Sarojni Nagar in October 2005.
