Delhi police on Monday chose to remain tight-lipped on the issue of the escape of three Pakistani terrorists from the Capital, saying probe into the incident had begun and only the Central government could clarify which agency was responsible for it.

Addressing a press conference, Delhi police chief Y S Dadwal said a report, which was sought by the Ministry of Home Affairs after the terrorists' escape, has been sent.

He, however, refused to share its contents, saying, "that is an internal affair."

Dadwal also refused to comment on the claims of the FRRO (Foreigners' Regional Registration Registration Office) that the custody of the three terrorists, who escaped on Friday, was always the responsibility of special branch of the Delhi Police.

"I don't want to say anything. We have sent our report to the government. The government will make matters clear. The magisterial inquiry, set up by the Lt Governor, will also make matters clear," the police commissioner said.

To a question on the status of investigation, Dadwal said that a case was registered against the three absconding Pakistani terrorists.

"Investigation is on and actions are also being taken. An inquiry has already been set up by Delhi Lt Governor. The Centre is looking into it," Dadwal said refusing speak further on the investigations underway.
