New Delhi, January 18
After re-registering the case involving arrest of J&K Deputy Superintendent of Police Davinder Singh, the NIA is set to probe a letter written by the officer in 2005.
The Intelligence Bureau has found that in the letter, the DSP had asked for “safe passage” to one of the four terrorists arrested by the Delhi Police on the Delhi-Gurugram border on their way from Kashmir to Delhi.
Sources in the NIA said currently the accused had been booked under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, but as the probe progresses, he could be arrested under the National Security Act. “We have taken the possession of the 2005 letter written by Davinder and sent it for forensic investigation,” said a senior officer of the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
Sources in the Intelligence Bureau (IB) said following the arrest of the four terrorists, search operations were conducted in which the police seized a sketch of the Palam airbase and also a letter written by the DSP to one of the arrested terrorists.
“The letter, signed by Davinder Singh, who was then Deputy Superintendent of Police, CID, in Jammu and Kashmir, said the terrorist was allowed to carry a pistol (registration no. K 14363) and one wireless set for ‘duty’. The letter asked all security agencies to give ‘safe passage’ without any verification,” an IB source said, adding that the letter was written on Davinder’s letterhead.
