But not everyone in the area knew that four different graveyards had been kept ready and so there was confusion and suspicion all around. About 50 people and some mediapersons were waiting at Batala House graveyard at 4 pm for the bodies to come. Two hours later word went round that they could be buried at the graveyard at Basti Hazrat Nizamuddin.

Besides two dozens of close relatives and friends some mediapersons were also waiting at the graveyard at Basti Hazrat Nizamuddin. Sources said that bodies of the two were buried around 10 in the night today at the graveyard in Nizamuddin.

Four different graveyards were kept ready just to confuse people. Perhaps, the police administration was thinking that arrival of body will arouse tension. So a good number of security personnel were deployed at these graveyards and in Jamia Nagar area.

It is learnt that the families of the two wanted to bury them in Batala House but it is believed that the Commissioner of Police did not allow this.

Today was the fourth day. The relatives of the two alleged terrorism suspects killed in the encounter have been running from pillar to post for the bodies. The autopsy was conducted late in the evening today and then in heavy police protection was brought to the graveyard.
