The 10 youths detained by Delhi Police for suspected ideological leaning towards banned outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) have now been released due to lack of adequate evidence.
While four of them were released on Saturday with Delhi Police having arranged for them sessions with a clinical psychologist to help them “deradicalise”, guardians of the remaining six released today had to give undertakings ensuring that their wards will be on the “right path” henceforth.
Delhi Police’s anti-terrorism unit Special Cell had picked up 13 youths from Delhi and UP after a series of late night raids on May 3, following which three—Sajid, Sameer Ahmed, and Shakir Ansari—were arrested and the remaining 10 detained for questioning.
“The remaining six youths have been let off with the condition that they have to make themselves available for questioning whenever summoned. Their guardians have given undertaking that they will make sure the boys lead their lives in the right path in future,” Special Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Arvind Deep said.
Their is no arrangement with psychiatrist for the six unlike the other four who have to visit a clinical psychologist on a regular basis. The psychologist will provide the investigators with a report on their progress every week, 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, Deep said, adding that so far there is no evidence to make further arrests in the case.
