LeT wants Srinagar blast blame on Hindutva outfits
New Delhi: Intelligence agencies have intercepted a telephonic conversation of Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) spokesperson in Pakistan asking a Kashmiri journalist to put the blame of Friday`s Srinagar blast that killed a top religious leader on Hindutva groups, including the Shiv Sena.
"Message (was) intercepted between Abdullah Ghaznavi, LeT spokesperson in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and a reporter in Kashmir," said a source privy to the interception.
He said that LeT leader during the telephonic conversation "directed (the reporter) to spread the message to misdirect people that the blast in Srinagar was done by the Shiv Sena and Bajrang Dal and that more such actions (are) likely by these organisations".
Prominent Kashmiri religious leader Maulana Showkat Shah, a trenchant critic of last year`s stone throwing youngsters, was killed in a powerful bomb blast outside a mosque in Srinagar, triggering a spontaneous shutdown that crippled life in the Jammu and Kashmir summer capital.
