The Central Bureau of Investigation on November 17 requested Sessions Court in New Delhi to frame charges against the top officer of the Delhi Police Special Cell, Ravinder Kumar Tyagi. According to the CBI, Tyagi fabricated evidence against two men in an earlier case to show they were terrorists. Tyagi was leading the team along with Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma, in the September 19 L-18 Batla House encounter. The CBI in a report submitted to the Session’s Court states that Tyagi helped fabricate evidence against Mohammad Muarif Qamar and Irshad Ali, who the Special Cell claimed were dangerous Al-Badr terrorists. Tyagi has been awarded the President’s Medal for Gallantry at this year’s Republic Day. In the closure report filed in Sessions Court on November 11 the CBI argued that both Qamar and Ali are “innocent”.  In fact the CBI revealed that both these men were working as informers for the Special Cell and their Inspectors Hriday Bhushan and Lalit Mohan Negi. Delhi Police Special Cell arrested Qamar and Ali in February 2006 branding them as “dreaded terrorists of Al-Badr”. Both of them are still lodged in Tihar Jail. After thorough investigations the CBI has not found any evidence against them. After examining 90 witnesses the CBI concluded that there was nothing to prove that the arrested men were Al- Badr terrorists and hence recommended their acquittal.
