New Delhi: Pakistani national and terrorist Bahadur Ali has disclosed that he is a part of a big group of terrorists who have been infiltrated into India by Lashkar-e-Toiba.
National Investigating Agency (NIA) sources on Thursday said that the Lashkar terrorist was not a fidayeen, but he had tried to hurl grenades in Handwara 2-3 times, but failed.
The NIA sources also claimed that when Ali was captured on 25 July, 2016, Rs 23,000 Indian currency and some amount of fake currency was recovered from him.
NIA on Wednesday had held a press conference and exposed Pakistan's connection with Bahadur Ali.
During interrogation Ali had revealed that a group of four terrorists are also moving in the area to execute an attack in village Monibal. Based on this input, security forces were deployed to prevent the attack. On the 26th July, at Monibal, four heavily armed terrorists were spotted and on being challenged, they started firing with AK-47 rifles. In the retaliatory firing, all the four terrorists were killed.
Since the onset of summer of 2016 LeT, with the help of Pakistan forces deployed on the border has been infiltrating heavily armed trained terrorists into India with the direction to mix with the local people and create disturbance and attack police and security forces.
Bahadur Ali was member of one of the groups who was directed to take advantage of the current situation in Kashmir and throw grenades by mixing into the crowd.
Bahadur Ali was constantly guided and directed by the LeT control centre Alpha-3 in Pakistan- occupied Kashmir, which is operated with support from Pakistani forces.
During communications with Bahadur Ali, Alpha-3 told that the LeT cadres had been successful in fuelling large scale agitation in Kashmir after EID subsequent to the death of Burhan Wani in Kashmir.
