Police on Thursday quizzed a man in Balrampur district, as his face resembled the sketch of one of the suspects in the Delhi High Court blast, but he was let off after checking his antecedents.

"Shahzad alias Imran was called at Bela police station after some people reported that his face resembled one of the sketches of suspects issued by the Delhi Police, but he was released later," special director general of police Brij Lal told reporters in Lucknow.

He said that Shahzad worked as a daily labour in Pune and returned to Gonda this morning.

"His credentials were checked with the local residents and with the manager of the company in Pune where he worked after which he was released," he said.
