Police may quiz Shahabuddin for Hizb links

 SRINAGAR: The problems for RJD MP Shahabuddin seem to be far from over as the police in Jammu and Kashmir are likely to question him for his alleged links with pro-Pakistan Hizbul Mujahideen.

Shahabuddin, who has been in judicial custody after his arrest last year in connection with various cases including murder and abductions, could face tough questions as the state police claims that he had received two consignments of arms from Kupwara in early 2000 which included deadly AK rifles as well, official sources said.

They said they had earlier asked the Bihar police to help in tracing the MP but could not manage to get him.

“We were conveyed by our Bihar counterparts that the MP was not traceable,” a senior officer, engaged with the investigation, said.

After his arrest last year following recovery of some arms, the Jammu and Kashmir police were now preparing grounds for questioning him after a militant of the Hizbul Mujahideen outfit said during interrogation that he had supplied AK rifles and pistols to him in Delhi. A report to this had also been sent to the Union Home Ministry.
