HYDERABAD: A Delhi police team reportedly questioned two persons in city, both running Madrasa’s here, following a disclosure that a gangster had approached them seeking money to purchase weapons, which he was planning to use for extortions.
Though the police questioned the duo and even raided the Madrasa premises, no one arrested.
Informed sources told Express that a police team from Delhi arrived here Friday and picked up Maulana Mufti Zakir Hussain who runs a Madrasa in Chintalmet of Rajendranagar and Hafiz Hassan Noori who runs a Madrasa in Nallakunta. The police team questioned the duo about their association with one Rehman, who is in the custody of Delhi police.
“They were questioned by the Delhi police team but were let off in the night. This morning, they searched the premises of the Madrasas also,” sources said.
It is learnt that Rehman was picked up by Delhi police a few days ago and some weapons were found in his possession. During interrogation, he revealed the names of the two Hyderabadis, whom he approached for money. Rehman, sources said, got in touch with a well known Muslim scholar Taufeeq Razzak Baba of Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh and told him that he intended to start a website after a Dargah in UP. Following this, the Baba is believed to have told him to contact the two Hyderabadis.
