Srinagar, Jan 15: Deputy superintendent of police (DSP) Devinder Singh, who was arrested on the charge of aiding terrorists in Jammu-Kashmir, was today dismissed from the police service. A notification to this effect was issued by the Jammu-Kashmir police.
On the other hand, marathon interrogation of Devinder was going on by security agencies.
Jammu-Kashmir police sources said Devinder was under police scanner for his alleged terrorist link since the beginning. However, luck was in his support and he was escaping from the departmental scrutiny every time. But his effort to get the Hijbul terrorists cross the Kashmir border has proved costly for him.
Sources said Devinder was under suspicion about his conduct from his phone call records. Police suspected him first about his terrorist link from a telephone call recorded by Sopian DSP Sandip Choudhury. However, Devinder cleverly escaped from the suspicion. But his telephone call with Hijbul district commander Nabid Babu was recorded which exposed Devinder’s terrorist link.
Babu’s call record revealed that Devinder had promised to take him and his one of the associates from Srinagar to Jammu in his car. Accordingly, Devinder’s movement with Babu and his associate in his I-10 car was monitored by South Kashmir DIG Atul Goel. Police intercepted Devinder’s car near the Kulgaon Mirbazar police outpost and arrested him along with the two terrorists from his car.
