Judicial remand of Udhampur terror attack accused extended

Jammu, Jan 4 (IANS) A special National investigation Agency (NIA) court here on Monday has extended the judicial remand of Udhampur terror attack accused Muhammad Naveed and his five accomplices by 13 days, police said.

Naveed, a resident of Faisalabad in Pakistan and five Kashmiris accused to have facilitated the terror attack, were presented before the court on Monday by the NIA team investigating the attack, a senior police officer told IANS.

Naveed and another Pakistani terrorist Noman had attacked a border security force (BSF) bus on August 5 last year on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway in Udhampur.

Two BSF troopers were killed in the attack while 11 others were injured.

Noman was killed in the ensuing gunfight on the spot while Naveed had managed to escape to a nearby village where the villagers over-powered him and handed him over to police.

On custodial interrogation of Naveed, the NIA team arrested five Kashmiris belonging to south Kashmir areas who had allegedly facilitated the attack by carrying the two terrorists and their weapons to the attack site.
