The NIA, which is probing the arrest of alleged Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Liyaqat Shah, told the Union Home Ministry on Thursday that the J&K Police were not informed by the special cell of Delhi Police while arresting him from Sonauli check post at the India-Nepal border.

 The NIA said the J&K Police were aware of Shah’s plan to surrender before the state authorities. Shah’s application for surrender and rehabilitation was cleared by the state government in 2011.  In its preliminary report, the NIA said that the J&K Police were not kept in the loop. Even the border guarding force, the SSB, did not inform the arrival and detention of Shah to the J&K Police. The arrest had triggered a turf war between Delhi Police and J&K Police.
