Pakistani military experts trained captured terrorist: NIA

New Delhi, Aug 10 (IANS) The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday claimed that the arrested Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Bahadur Ali was trained by military experts in Pakistan.

NIA said Bahadur Ali was directed to take advantage of the volatile situation in Jammu and Kashmir following the encounter of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani.

NIA Inspector General Sanjeev Kumar Singh said: “Arms and ammunition training given to LeT terrorist Bahadur Ali show the involvement of military experts.”

Singh said that the captured terrorist underwent all three training processes organised by LeT. He was recruited by Jamaat-ud-Dawa and subsequently radicalised by LeT.

“Articles recovered from him show that he was provided references in codes which clearly indicates highly trained people provided training to him.”

The officer also claimed that Bahadur Ali, who was recently captured from North Kashmir, was regularly guided from “control rooms of terrorist groups in Pakistan occupied Kashmir with the help of Pakistani forces”.

The NIA has said that this is an ongoing investigation to gather details about the role of LeT in the current situation in Kashmir.

Following the encounter of Burhan Wani, a 22-year-old social media savvy Hizbul Mujahideen commander on July 8, Kashmir has witnessed a total lockdown in the valley for more than a month now.
