New Delhi/IBNS: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday questioned the silence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval over the arrest of Deputy Superintendent of Jammu and Kashmir Police Davinder Singh, who was travelling in a car with three Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists on the Jammu-Srinagar highway.

In a tweet, Rahul asked: "DSP (Deputy Superintendent of Police) Davinder Singh sheltered 3 terrorists with blood on their hands at his home and was caught ferrying them to Delhi. He must be tried by a fast track court within 6 months & if guilty, given the harshest possible sentence for treason against India."

Congress general secretary and Rahul's sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra demanded a thorough probe over the issue.

"DSP Davindar Singh's arrest in JK raises disturbing questions critical to India's national security. It seems rather odd that he not only evaded detection but was entrusted with extremely sensitive duties like escorting foreign envoys to J&K under the prevailing circumstances Whose orders was he working under? A full investigation must be made. Helping terrorists plan attacks on India is treason," she tweeted.

Davinder Singh, a Deputy Superintendent of Police posted at Srinagar International Airport, was caught on Saturday at Wanpoh on Jammu-Srinagar highway in Kulgam district.

He was arrested along with three Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists.

After the arrests, arms and ammunition were seized from various parts of the city. An Ak-47 and two pistols were found in Davinder Singh's residence in Srinagar's Indranagar area.

According to NDTV,  on Friday Davinder Singh escorted the terrorists from Shopian in south Kashmir to his home, where they stayed overnight.

The news organisation reported that top Hizbul Mujahideen commander Naveed Babu and his two accomplices Irfan and Rafi spent the night in Singh's official residence which shares a wall with Army's 15 Corps Headquarters. Singh and the three militants set out on Saturday morning for Jammu, from where they had plans to go to Delhi.

Singh, who was decorated with President's Police Medal for Gallantry just six months ago, had transported Naveed to several places. Last year, he had escorted him to Jammu, the NDTV report added.

Police, interrogating Singh, is yet to learn if his visit to Delhi had anything to do with the Republic Day.
