New Delhi: Two teenaged Kashmiri students of Jamiatul Falah, a reputed madrasa in Azamgarh, were picked up reportedly by Uttar Pradesh ATS from Kaifiyat Express on Thursday morning (24th May) at Aligarh Railway Station.
Three days have passed, neither their parents, nor the madrasa have been informed by the UP ATS. The boys haven’t been presented in any court either. The police have not yet announced their detention or arrest. Confirming the incident, Maulana Tahir Madani, Director, Jamiatul Falah, told TCN over phone that the two Kashmir students who were cousin brothers boarded Kaifiyat Express on Wednesday.
They were going to Delhi to meet their elder brother who had come there for treatment. When the boys did not reach Delhi on Thursday their family informed the madrasa. Next day (on Friday) local media reported about the arrest of two Kashmiri youths from Kaifiyat Express. “Sajjad Ahmed Batt was student of Arabi Awwal (First year of 5-year Arabic course) and Wasim Ahmed Batt was studying in the second year of the same course.
They were cousin brothers. Wasim’s elder brother had come to Delhi for treatment and they were going to see him,” said Maulana Madani. Dainik Jagran Hindi daily published a news report on Friday (25th May) regarding the arrest of two Kashmiri youths from Kaifiyat Express.
The report said “ATS picked two Kashmiri youths suspected for anti-national activities from Kaifiyat Express on Thursday morning. The authorities of Jamiatul Falah have filed a written complaint in the local police station about the abduction of their students.
They are today meeting Superintendent of Police, Azamgarh. Reacting to the incident, Maulana Madani said the students are innocent and they are falsely implicated.
