Pune-based teenage girl who was detained by Jammu and Kashmir police on January 25 for allegedly being a suicide bomber has been silently handed over to her family.
Official sources told news agency GNS that whatever was alleged against her proved mere hoax and that she along with her mother left for Pune at 3:00 pm on Saturday. Her maternal uncle, who arrived with her mother, had already left for Pune few days back.
Sources further said that the girl was extensively questioned all these days during which she was in police captivity at Rambagh but nothing was proved against her.
They said it was a clear case of misinterpreting an intelligence input by Jammu and Kashmir police who were reportedly informed by central security agencies that a Pune-based girl had shifted her base to Valley and there was need to mount surveillance.
Additional Deputy General of Police Muneer Khan who is functioning as Inspector General of Police, Kashmir Range had stated that it would be premature to declare her suicide bomber when he was asked by the reporters at the time of girl’s arrest.
The misinterpretation of the input had led to heightened security across the Valley on January 26.
