Suspects held in Delhi not linked to Wilson murder


The Delhi Police has clarified that three Muslims from Tami Nadu arrested on Thursday and Friday on suspicion of links with radical outfits have no links with the murder of Special Sub-Inspector of Police Y Wilson on Wednesday night at a police outpost in Kanyakumari on Kerala border.

Delhi Deputy Commissioner of Police ( special cell) Pramod Kushwah has gone on record that the three arrested by them are in no way connected with the gunning down of SSI Wilson at Kaliyakavilai police outpost by two car-borne Muslim youths when they were intercepted while entering Tamil Nadu from Kerala.

”Don’t mix up the two cases”, the police officer told Chennai media.

The arrested have been identified as Khaja Moideen( 52) and Abdul Samad(28) from Cuddalore and Syed Ali Nivas( 32) from Kanyakumari .

On the basis of video camera footages, Tamil Nadu police have identified the killers of Wilson as Abdul Shameem and Toufiq, both from Kanyakumari.

The two jumped bail after their arrest in the murder of Hindi Munnani activist Suresh six years ago and have been on the run since then.

The Chennai police moved the district court on Friday for cancellation of bail granted to them. Additional Sessions Judge J Selvanathan issued arrest warrant against them.

Separately, three Muslims arrested by the Bengaluru police on Tuesday over their suspected links with radical outfits and who have since been brought to Chennai by the Q branch of the Tamil Nadu police were produced in an Egmore court on Friday. The judge remanded them to police custody for 10 days.

They are Mohd Haneef Khan, Imran Khan and Mohd Zaid.
