Murdered IM operative's family demands CBI probe
Qateel Siddiqui, a native of Bihar's Barh Samaila village in Darbhanga district, about 200 km from here, was Friday found strangled with a thin rope inside his cell in the high-security jail in Pune.
Family members and villagers are shocked and angry over Qateel's murder, as half a dozen youth hailing from the village were arrested for suspected terror links till date.
An accused in the Jama Masjid shootout case of 2010, Qateel was arrested by Delhi Police in November 2011 and was in transit remand in Pune. He was arrested for making an attempt to plant a bomb at the Shrimant Dagdusheth Halwai Ganapati temple in Pune on the day of the German Bakery blast Feb 13, 2010.
