Four of the ten terror suspects who were detained by Delhi Police for their alleged ideological leaning towards banned outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) were released on Saturday due to lack of adequate evidence, three days after being questioned by the anti-terrorism unit.

“We have released four JeM suspects in lack of evidence indicating their relation with the terror outfit and involvement in any terror acts,” a police officer said.

Of the four, three are residents of east Delhi’s Chand Bagh locality and the other from Ghaziabad’s Loni area. They were let off from the Special Cell’s Lodhi Colony office this evening.

They were freed after investigators said they did not find adequate evidence to prove their involvement in the suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed ring, which was busted earlier this week with the arrest of three youths. Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) were recovered from their possession, police sources said.

As many as 13 people were picked up by the Special Cell after a late night operation on Tuesday. Of them, three have been arrested, four let off and six are still being questioned by the investigators.
