NEW DELHI: Four months after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani and the continuing unrest in Jammu & Kashmir, the National Investigation Agency is all set to expose the role of Pakistani defence forces in orchestrating violence and spreading terrorism in Kashmir.
By the end of this month, the agency will file a chargesheet against Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Bahadur Ali, who was arrested a few days after Wani’s killing (on July 8). In the chargesheet, the NIA will explain how Pakistani army majors and captains not only facilitate the infiltration of terrorists’ belonging to LeT, Hizbul Mujahideen and Jaish-e-Mohammad by dropping them near the line of control and by providing them safe routes and sophisticated military gadgets but also brief them about their mission in India and check their preparedness before they are launched.
On the basis of Ali’s disclosures, the NIA will reveal how the LeT leadership, including Hafiz Saeed and his son-inlaw Khalid Waleed, had established a control room – Alpha 3 – that operated with the support of Pakistani forces in Muzaffarabad (Pakistan occupied Kashmir). From the control room directions were given to terrorists who had crossed over to mix with protestors and stone pelters in the valley and throw grenades to intensify the violence.
The NIA probe revealed that arms (AK-47 rifles), ammunition and communication equipment, including ICOM RT sets (made in Japan) to cover a whole range of (VHF) frequencies, found from Ali could only be provided by the Pakistani army.
Ali, 21, was provided specific grid references for the route to be followed and was tutored in the use of GPS, compass and topographical sheets by military experts.
In his confession, Ali, a resident of Jia Bagga village in Pakistan’s Punjab province, allegedly claimed that Pakistani army officers visited them (terrorists to be launched) near the LoC and briefed them on the plan to be followed.
