30 December 2015

Jammu: The government Wednesday said police was looking into the revelations made by three arrested youth from Hyderabad that they were planning to meet separatist leader Asiya Andrabi and join jihadi militant groups. 'We are in touch with the Telangana police. All the agencies are investigating. It is a serious case so we are on the job,' Deputy Chief Minister Dr Nirmal Singh told reporters here. He was asked for comments on the revelations made by the three youths who were arrested on December 27 following their detention by police last week from the Nagpur airport before they were to leave for Srinagar. 'I have reports that there was some communication when one of the relatives of the boys who was killed in an accident, who was a SIMI activist,' Singh said. He said Asiya had sent condolences to them. 'I think it happened last year, but in between, whether they had some communication with her is a matter of investigation'. The Deputy Chief Minister said the matter is under probe. 'I think it is not proper to say more unless we pick up some more threads, but we are on the job. We are taking it seriously.' He said the trio were definitely coming to Srinagar to meet her because they were knowing her name and all that. 'All these things have to be established'. 'Definitely, the government and police will verify these facts. There is every apprehension of such a thing. If it is proved, then the government will act as per law,' Singh said.
