    UP to free top terror suspects

    Saturday, Apr 7, 2012
    By Deepak Gidwani | Place: Lucknow | Agency: DNA

    The fledgling Akhilesh Yadav government seems to be stepping into the quicksand of controversy with a reported decision to withdraw cases against two Muslim terrorists in jail for the serial blasts in courts in Lucknow, Faizabad and Varanasi on November 23, 2007. Several people were killed in the blasts.

    The state government’s move promises to generate a huge controversy. The BJP has already termed it “anti-national” while the Congress is predictably guarded in its reaction, considering its delicate political equation with the ruling Samajwadi Party. The SP has justified the move saying it is only carrying out its election promise.

    Highly-placed sources have confirmed to DNA that chief secretary Javed Usmani recently wrote to the state law department asking for legal opinion on withdrawal of terror cases against Tariq Qasmi and Khalid Mujahid, alleged HUJI militants who engineered the November 2007 serial blasts. Tariq belongs to Azamgarh while Khalid hails from Jaunpur in eastern UP. The sources also say this is just the beginning, and many more such cases could be reviewed.

    The UP Police’s special task force (STF) had nabbed the two from near the Barabanki railway station on December 20, 2007. More than a kilo of RDX and detonators were recovered from them.

    Legal experts say it would be virtually impossible for the state government to withdraw the terror charges as the anti terrorism squad (ATS) has already filed a chargesheet and the case is in the trial stage.

    The move has also raised misgivings among police officials. “If the state government goes ahead with its plan to withdraw the cases (against Tariq and Khalid), it would only prove that all the evidence produced by the STF and the ATS is nothing but a bundle of lies. This would be a major blow to the morale of the police, and also affect anti-terror operations in future,” said a senior UP Police official.

    However, the SP does not seem to think so. “We are only doing what we promised in our manifesto and in our election campaign,” says party spokesman Rajendra Chaudhry. “The chief minister has also listed this as a priority area,” he added. The SP manifesto had promised a review of cases in which Muslim youths had been implicated in false cases in the name of anti-terror operations. It had also promised adequate compensation, and strict action against the guilty officials.

    “The government is acting against national interest only to appease the minorities,” said state BJP president Surya Pratap Shahi. “The SP wants to free terrorists who have taken so many innocent lives. They are playing a dangerous game for petty votebank politics,” he added.

    “If the two are innocent, they should be released. But we need to remember that terrorism is the biggest danger we are facing,” said Congress leader Pramod Tiwari. “We will oppose the move if the government tries to release anyone found guilty as a terrorist,” he adds.

    Getting Muslim votes does not mean terrorists are released. :facepalm: the move is dangerous.

    It is welcome move by UP government. Akhiesh is releasing innocent terror suspects not terrorists.

    Let the courts decide.

    It would be wrong to believe that terrorist kill selectively.

    And terrorists have no religion!

    And you know this how?

    I really doubt the honesty of this action, UP is fast turning into a terror hub...there's no denying it.

    Samajwadi Party always got Muslim vote already.There is no point to release innocent terror suspects if it is only political stunt.

    Anyone who spreads terror is a terrorist.

    Raju Bhaiyya is a terror in UP!

    So, nothing odd that terrorist suspects are being released.

    Will come handy for the goon brigade!

    I think this is time , when we differentiate between Goon and terrorist. Terrorist has an ideology behind it.

    As far as Raja bhaiyya is concerned , He is elected MLA, ask people from his constituency why they voted him to power.

    I'm not sure you understood the intent, before the elections Akhilesh Yadav had promised he won't allow people with criminal history in his government but backtracked from the stated promise (and hence the "fishy remark).

    Please try to comprehend comments before replying to them.

    Okay, out of 54, 45...thats about 80%...surely UP is not so densely populated!!

    Thats beside point, my statement of UP turning into a terror hub was not limited to SP governance.

    1.I can not deny this, there are always soft corner.

    2. If any government has initiated it , I would have support it be it BJP or JD U .

    3. Congress is "Dogali" party when it comes to election. Digvijay says Batla encounter was fake , Chidamvarm said it was genuine.
