New Delhi/Srinagar: Captured Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Naved Yakub alias Usman Khan has made a big revelation during interrogation by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

As per reports, Naved has told his interrogators that he was trained to carry out suicide missions by none other than Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed's son Talha.

It was, in fact, Talha only who had planned the attack on the Border Security Force convoy in Jammu and Kashmir's Udhampur earlier this month in which two BSF jawans were killed.
