Jamia Nagar residents foil ‘encounter’ bid by Noida police

by Mumtaz Alam Falahi

New Delhi: The residents of Jamia Nagar today foiled a kidnapping/encounter attempt by some policemen in plainclothes in Shaheen Bagh area under the Jamia Nagar Police Station in Delhi.

It was around 8 in the night when a black Hyundai car with tinted glasses but with no number plates entered Shaheen Bagh. Five persons, maybe ATS sleuths in plainclothes, came out and tried to drag a youth named Amir into the car. He resisted and asked them why they were dragging him. They said they will tell him soon.

As the Jamia Nagar encounter and subsequent indiscriminate picking of locals were fresh in people's mind, locals began gathering. The plainclothes people threatened them but as mob got thicker, some of them slipped away. The locals, however, were able to catch one who later turned out to be an ASI of Noida Police. The public brought both the policeman and Amir to Jamia Nagar police station.

Hundreds of people gathered around the police station and demanded action against the 'kidnapppers'. They alleged that their plan was to encounter the person and later declare him a terrorist.

People say Amir was with his friend Irfan on a motorcycle. Amir from Zafarabad area in Delhi had come here to meet someone. They alleged that his friend Irfan was police informer because those came in car tried to drag into the car only Amir, not Irfan. Irfan also fled the scene.

The car had no number plate but a number plate was found in the car which had DL1T W 1590 written on it. The plate looked new and unused. The mob also was able to snatch some documents from the Noida policemen. They include PANCARDS, mobile, SIM. Among other things in the car two ID with different picture but same name belonging to an IT company was found in the car. The angry residents damaged the car and broke window panes. The local police reached the spot and asked the residents to hand over Amir and the policemen but the people demanded that they will do it before higher authorities.

Soon ACP (Sarita Vihar) Gurcharan Das reached there and persuaded the locals to handover the men. After much effort the police could bring them and the car to the Jamia Nagar Police Station. But hundreds of locals followed the police and reached the station.

People remained outside the station until 1 am when the police announced that the FIR from Amir has been registered. This all proceeding was done in the presence of Aziz Burney, Editor of Sahara Urdu daily, Md Rahman, Delhi High Court advocate and some local leaders.

Talking to mediapersons around 1 am, DCP Ajay Choudhry said those who came in the car were Noida Police personnel. The Delhi Police will investigate the matter. He said he had contacted Noida SSP and he assured he is looking into the case and action will be taken against the guilty officials.

This blogsite has turned into a jehadi site. Supporting terrorists and terrorism by a Pinarayi man!! Bugus intellectuals having a slavish mentality is dangerous to honest and factual news coverage.
Nuns are daily raped and killed by missionaries - that's normal for these bogus inttelctual frauds. Islamic terrorism is rising in Kerala with full support of CPM frauds. Arent you ashamed of aligning with Nero pinarai?, Mr BRP? When will these lies and spins end?

Mr. Jairam

I think something has to be said of ur excellent mind set! u seem to have psychic powers! the case hasn't even been investigated and just b'coz Mr.Bhaskar has posted it on his site, u tend to accuse him of supporting terrorism!!!!

who do u suppose these terrorists are in this case? perhaps u mean, the PLAINCLOTHED NOIDA POLICE/ identity thieves who were going to kidnap Amir with the intention of producing him somewhere else as another media hyped MASTERMIND and layering him with fabricated evidence!!!
The last i knew was that, India was a democracy with an active(so what if its slow)judiciary where a person who is suspected of any crime can be apprehended in a lawful way and not kidnapped/executed by the very people who claim to uphold law and order.

the problem is you don't have any apprehensions about the authenticity of this report(otherwise you would have done ur own research instead of shooting ur mouth away), you are angry at why at all it was reported on this blog or anywhere else, or perhaps, why people of a particular community are resisting to being labeled as terrorists....they should subject themselves meekly to what n all horrific might happen to any of them.

please don't hide your hatred behind a false sheild of concern about the rapes and killing of christians or destruction of their worshipping places. you haven't named the perpetrators, the BaJRANG DAL-VHP-RSS-BJP combine, in ur comments or denounced them. SO MUCH FOR CHAMPIONING THE CAUSE OF HONEST AND FACTUAL NEWS COVERAGE!!!!
A hatred monger who has divided humans on religious, caste, color lines isn't even being kind to himself, leave alone taking up the cause of another human being(nuns).
ITS U WHO ARE DANGEROUS TO THE WORLD. PLZ get ur sick mind treated.
