New Delhi: The Delhi Police’s special cell on Saturday recovered a body chopped into three pieces from the Bhalswa drain in north Delhi after questioning the two arrested terror suspects. The Delhi Police informed that they are identifying the deceased. Incidentally, the recovery was made near the house of the two accused, Naushad and Jagjit Singh, who were arrested under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). The neighbours of the accused told mediapersons that the accused had shifted to the house around Diwali and were rarely seen outside. Jagjit Singh (29) alias Jagga alias Yaqub, a resident of Uttarakhand, and Naushad (56), a resident of Jahangirpuri, were arrested by the police on Thursday for their suspected links with terror organisations and involvement in heinous crimes.
On Friday, the Special Cell had recovered two hand grenades from their rented accommodation in the Bhalswa Dairy area. “The disclosures made by the accused led the police to their rented accommodation at Shradha Nand Colony under the Bhalswa Dairy police station area. Two hand grenades were recovered from their room,” said a senior police officer.
“Traces of human blood were also found by the forensic team,” the officer said. The police said they have also recovered three pistols along with 22 bullets. The duo was been sent to 14-day police custody on Friday.
