New Delhi: A report claimed on Tuesday that Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed's son-in-law Khalid Waleed could have masterminded the recent terrorist attack on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy in Jammu and Kashmir.
Eight CRPF jawans were martyred while 21 others were injured as four terrorists ambushed the CRPF convoy in Pampore town, some 16 kilometres from Srinagar.
Two of the terrorists were killed while the other two managed to escape.
The Times of India reported today that while Khalid Waleed planned the attack, his deputies Hanzla Adnan and Sajid Jat acted as handlers to the terrorists.
Lashkar-e-Toiba commander for south Kashmir Abu Dujana, meanwhile, took care of the logistics.
The report cited intelligence officials as saying that the J&K police has recovered credible evidence to prove that Pakistan played a key role in Saturday's terror attack.
Hanzla and Sajid are also believed to be handlers of Mohammad Naveed, the Pakistani terrorist who was captured alive during an attack on a BSF convoy in August last year.
As per intelligence sources, Hanzla and Sajid had shifted to Pakistan from Kashmir several years ago.
The report said Saeed is currently grooming Khalid Waleed to take care of anti-India operations of the Lashkar-e-Taiba.
"We believe Waleed, who has been associated with Jamaat-ud-Dawa for a long time and now handling LeT operations, gave instructions for this operation," the newspaper quoted an officer as saying.
