New Delhi:

Four of the 10 terror suspects who were detained by Delhi Police for their alleged ideological leaning towards banned outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) were today released due to lack of adequate evidence, three days after being questioned by its Special Cell.

Delhi Police have also approached the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), the Government of India’s nodal agency that deals with cyber security threats, to help them in the investigation.

Of the four suspects who were detained today, three are residents of east Delhi’s Chand Bagh locality and the other is from Ghaziabad’s Loni area. They were let off from the force’s anti-terrorism unit Special Cell’s Lodhi Colony office around 4 PM.

“We have arranged for a Delhi-based clinical psychologist and the four of them have been asked to visit him on a regular basis. The psychologist will provide us with a report on their progress every week,” Special Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Arvind Deep said.

He said during questioning it emerged that the youths had extreme anger within them as a result of which they were vulnerable, making them potential inductees in terror rings.

The four youths were freed after investigators said they did not find adequate evidence to prove their involvement in the suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed ring, which was busted earlier this week with the arrest of three youths and Improvised Explosive Device were recovered from their possession, police sources said.

13 persons were picked up by the Special Cell after a late night operation on Tuesday. Of them, three—Sajid, Sameer Ahmed, and Shakir Ansari—have been arrested, four let off and six are still being questioned by the investigators.
