  • SIT to investigate Hanzullah’s escape

Police on Thursday said four people involved in the escape of Pakistani terrorist Naveed from a hospital in Srinagar have been arrested and disclosed that the conspiracy to free the captured LeT ultra was hatched four months ago in Central Jail.

The developments unfolded on a day the Mehbooba Mufti government suspended the superintendent of Srinagar's Central Jail where the conspiracy was apparently hatched.

Naveed escaped from police custody after a shootout in SMHS hospital on Tuesday in which two policemen were killed.

Jammu and Kashmir principal secretary, home, R.K. Goyal issued the order putting Central Jail superintendent Hilal Ahmad Rather under suspension "pending inquiry" into the incident. "The officer shall remain attached with Director General of Police, Prisons, till further order", the order read. We are police officers, not terrorists.

Reports said one of the cops injured in the militant attack identified as head constable Mushtaq Ahmad, a resident of Karnah area in north Kashmir, later succumbed to injuries.

Police today presented four persons, two terrorists and two over-ground workers (OGWs), before the media, who were arrested for their alleged involvement in the conspiracy that led to Naveed Jutt's escape. He says at the point of time militants fired at the police party killing two cops. Another local militant Hilal, whose role has been ascertained in the case, remains at large along with the main accused Naveed.

Jat's escape, police sources said, will motivate the LeT, which has faced a rout after its commander Abu Ismail was killed in an encounter past year.

"Six inmates were being taken to hospital for regular check-up when militants opened fire at them outside OPD A block". However, the police said it is premature to comment on Naikoo's claim.

He said Tika and another militant Hilal made several visits to the jail on different alibi for two months.

Explaining that why militants went to such lengths to free Naveed, Khan said that the LeT had lost most of its local leadership and were desperately looking to free one of their jailed colleague to fill the leadership vacuum.

He said on February 6, these guys came to Srinagar and took position outside the hospital.
