TWO ULTRAS of Lashkar-e-Tayyeba (LeT), Anas alias Abrar and Iliyas alias Rizwan, who were arrested in Delhi recently, were brought to the Charbagh Railway Station on Sunday under tight security. The Delhi police brought the LeT ultras to the city following the disclosure that both had kept their luggage at the cloakroom on platform number one.

The LeT terrorists were arrested on August 10 with RDX and detonators at New Delhi’s Ajmeri Gate Railway Station. In the presence of senior railway officials their luggage was recovered from the cloakroom. Rizwan’s international passport that was issued from passport office in Islamabad, Pakistan, Nepali currency and clothes were recovered.

The passport did not contain any mention of their entry in India.
While Anas alias Abrar is a native of Nazirpura, Bahraich, UP, Rizwan belongs to Islamabad, Pakistan. The police have gathered information that Abrar’s father Irfan too has been associated with LeT. What’s more, Irfan is also the main accused in the bomb blast in Rajdhani Express at Kanpur in 1993. After being released on bail, Irfan and his family has been missing. No one in Bahraich appears to know where the family might have gone.

The two LeT ultras in custody had revealed to Delhi police that they had left for Jammu on August 6 through Himgiri Express. From here they had gone to Delhi. The two said that they purchased their reservation ticket (PNR: 6361688556) from counter no 602 at the Charbagh reservation office.

What sent both the Delhi and UP cops in a tizzy was the disclosure by the LeT ultras that their luggage was still kept at the cloakroom at Lucknow’s Charbagh Railway Station.

Immediately, a special team of Delhi police headed by Additional Commissioner of Police (ACP), Sanjeev Yadav brought the LeT ultras to the city under tight security and taken straight to the cloakroom on platform number one around 8 am. The cops took the luggage under their custody after completing the necessary formalities. The luggage was checked in the presence of senior cops as well the bomb disposal squad.

Sources said that the luggage also contained a diary in which some important telephone numbers are there. The numbers and other details are being checked.
