The Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad had informed the Delhi Police today that Kawa, who had been declared a proclaimed offender in the case, was travelling from Srinagar to Delhi. Another officer said that money to the tune of Rs 29.50 lakh was transferred through hawala in various bank accounts, including those of Kawa, to fund the attack.
Kawa is believed to have told the police that in the past 18 years, he had changed his location frequently, but that he had been living in Jammu and Kashmir of late. Reportedly, Kawa, suspected to be linked with the Lashkar-e-Taiba, was arrested at around 6 pm on Wednesday and his interrogation is underway. He was presently staying in Kashmir with his family and was visiting Delhi to meet a relative, the sources added.
However, the family of Kawa has rejected Intelligence's claims that he was involved in the Red Fort terror attack. "Both of them are innocents and nothing was found against Bilal Ahmad Kawa at that time too when a team from Delhi arrived to investigate the matter".
"On December 22, 2000, three Indian Army personnel were killed in indiscriminate firing at Red Fort". Mohammad Arif from Pakistan's Abbottabad, who planned the attack, and 10 others have already been convicted in the case.
His family said that Kawa on January 10 had gone to Delhi for a medical check-up.
