DRDO to take action against terror suspect researcher

New Delhi :  Taken by surprise over the arrest of one of its researchers in Karnataka for links with Pakistan-based terror outfits, India''s defence research agency Friday announced that it was initiating disciplinary action against him under government rules.


Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) spokesperson Ravi Gupta said the youth, identified as Aijaz Ahmed Mirza, was only a junior researcher, which is a temporary position.

Mirza was not an employee, Gupta clarified.

"This has reference to reports in certain sections of media reporting the arrest of Aijaz Ahmed Mirza. In this regard, it is intimated that Mirza had been placed as Junior Research Fellow (JRF) for the past few months, at the Centre for Air Borne Systems (CABS), a DRDO laboratory," he said.

Gupta also said that verification of Mirza''s antecedents as well as police verification was conducted in the process of his placement in the temporary position.

"He was not involved in any sensitive work and as such no sensitive/classified information has been compromised. Disciplinary action as per government of India rules is being taken," he added.

Under the research fellowship scheme, DRDO offers opportunities to young scientists and engineers to work in its labs in the areas of basic research relevant to the laboratory.
