District administration orders probe into death of suspected-terrorist Saifullah
The Lucknow district administration on Saturday ordered a magisterial probe into the death of suspected- terrorist Saifullah, who was killed on the outskirts of Uttar Pradesh capital on March 8 after 12 hours long of anti-terror operation.
“A magisterial inquiry into the death of slain terrorist Saifullah has been ordered by the Lucknow district administration on the request of UP Anti-Terror Squad,” Additional District Magistrate (Lucknow West) Jai Shankar Dubey said.
He said that Sub-Divisional Magistrate Lucknow (Sadar) would be conducting the magisterial probe.
“The probe will be comepleted in one month, after which a report would be submitted to the Uttar Pradesh government,” Dubey said.
Saifullah, suspected to have been influenced by the ISIS, was killed after a 12-hour police operation in the wake of the Ujjain-Bhopal train blast.
His body was found with weapons lying next to him when the doors of the house, where he was holed up, were opened at the end of the operation.
The encounter came following the arrests of several “self-radicalised” persons, by the UP and MP police, suspected to be linked to the train blast in Shajapur in MP in which 10 persons were injured.
On March 15, the National Investigation Agency took over the probe into the activities of an alleged ‘self-radicalised’ ISIS inspired module.
