Two youths, detained in Delhi for plotting attack on Modi, released


The two youths, detained by the Delhi Police from Jamia Nagar on suspicion of plotting a terror attack on BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, have been released on Monday.

The two men were arrested by a special squad of Delhi Police on Sunday soon after the four Indian Mujahideen suspects were arrested from Rajasthan.

Both were picked up early morning on Sunday. One of the them is a final year student of mechanical engineering from a college in Jaipur and the other one is his friend.

According to police sources, the Jaipur college student, who is a native of Dhanbad in Jharkhand, had arrived in the national capital on Sunday and was to leave for Saudi Arabia this morning to perform Umrah in Mecca.

Their detention sparked off protest in Jamia Nagar on Sunday evening with residents of the area blocking a busy road linking Delhi-Noida. The residents also demanded that a case of kidnapping be lodged against the Special Cell for detaining the two men.
