NIA had sought Ali's custody for 14 days to unearth the larger conspiracy of LeT.
Srinagar: Bahadur Ali, the Pakistani terrorist who was captured alive by security forces after a fierce gunbattle, was on Saturday remanded to 12-day National Investigation Agency (NIA) custody.
The NIA, which has been interrogating Ali since his arrest in Kashmir, has managed to get some startling revelations from the Pak-based terrorist.
According to new agency ANI, Bahadur Ali, alias Saifullah revealed before NIA that he 'was sent to Kashmir to kill innocent civilians in the wake of ongoing unrest in the Valley.'
The 22-year-old terrorist also confirmed to the NIA that he was trained by Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) in guerilla warfare and has met Jamaat-ud-Dawaah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed twice.
Ali said that he was in regular touch with a Control Room established in PoK, where his handler Walid was instructing him.
The shocking revelations were made by him days after the Home Ministry confirmed that he was a Pakistani national from the Lahore city.
