New Delhi: Suspected ISI operative Samshul Hoda, who is the main accused in the Kanpur train derailment case, has been deported to Nepal from Dubai. But Hoda may not be handed over to India as the two countries have no extradition treaty at present. Nepal will, however, cooperate in the investigation, sources said.
Hoda is also the mastermind of a twin murder in Bara district of Nepal, police said. A case has already been registered against him in Bara District Court.
The police have brought Hoda and three other accused — identified as Brij Kishor Giri, Ashish Singh and Umesh Kumar Kurmi —to Nepal from Dubai in coordination with the Interpol, Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Pashupati Upadhyaya told PTI.
Hoda, who is suspected to be an ISI agent, is currently in the custody of Nepal police.
Pakistan’s spy agency ISI was suspected to be behind the train disaster in Kanpur after police arrested three people — Moti Paswan, Uma Shankar Patel and Mukesh Yadav — from Bihar's Motihari district.
Sources said that NIA would want to confront Hoda with other arrested accused like Paswan to get a clearer picture of the alleged conspiracy, money trail and so on.(Get detailed and live results of each and every seat of the state Assemblies in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram to know which candidate/party is leading or trailing and to know who has won and who has lost and by what margin.
