ANSWER


MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF HOME AFFAIRS

(SHRI S. REGUPATHY)

(a): One of the terrorists, namely, Yunus Khan who was killed in Ayodhya, is reported to have resided as a tenant in Village Kishan Garh, New Delhi.

(b): Five terrorists have been killed in encounters and 34 terrorists and 2 ISI agents arrested by Delhi Police up to 15th July, 2005. Information about arrest of terrorists in Noida is being collected and will be laid on the Table of the House.

(c): Delhi has a mixed population and a large number of people migrate to Delhi from other States every year and live in Delhi as tenants. Despite the efforts made by Delhi Police, a number of such tenants remain unverified as the house owners fail to inform the local police. As a result of this, anti-social elements/terrorists at times are successful in hiding themselves without being detected.

(d): The steps taken by Delhi Police to prevent entry of terrorists into Delhi include:
(i) sensitization of public through the print and electronic media; (ii) checking of guesthouses, hotels, religious places etc. in certain areas where terrorist elements could take shelter; (iii) checking of tenants, particularly in new and developing areas; (iv) surprise checking of vehicles plying in the city and those arriving from J&K, Punjab etc. at Azad Pur Mandi and Okhla Subzi Mandi; (v) close interaction with the State and Central Police Organizations for exchange of information; etc.

As regards entry of terrorists in surrounding areas of Delhi, necessary action is taken by the local administration of concerned State Governments.
