Suspect in Delhi High Court bomb blast released

New Delhi: Shariq Khawar Butt, one of the two students of 11th class arrested by investigating agencies in connection with Delhii High Court bomb blast, has been acquitted, considering him innocent. National Investigation Agency (NIA), truly speaking, was unable to prove whether the email sent by these boys was, like emails received from other places, simply a prank or part of any conspiracy. The investigating officer also was repeatedly talking about the email being sent by either Abid or Shariq. Finally, investigating officers brought Aamir Abbas and Aabid Husain to Delh on transit remand but Shariq Khawar Butt was being questioned in Kishtwar. His father Muhammad Rafi Butt said in Kishtwar that senior Police Superintendent Bhim Sen called him last night (on 23 Sept.) and handed over Shariq to him. However, two other youths, Abid Husain and Aamir who also were arrested in Kishtwar in connection with this bomb blast are still in NIA’s custody in Delhi.

Shariq’s father Muhammad Rafi’ Butt said after his son’s release that he had full faith in Allah that He will certainly protect his innocent son.
