The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday arrested a truck driver who allegedly helped Udhampur terrorist Naveed alias Usman and a few other militants.
The driver, who has been identified as Khursheed Ahmed, is a resident of Pulwama district of Jammu & Kashmir, according to PTI. The arrest was based on the information provided by Naveed, who was taken to Srinagar on Friday to identify the places, where he and his aides had plotted terror attacks.
Local residents had apprehended Naveed following a deadly terror attack on a Border Security Forces convoy in Jammu & Kashmir's Udhampur district earlier this month. His accomplice Mohammed Noman was killed in retaliatory firing by the BSF.
Naveed had earlier revealed during a polygraph test that the Pakistani Army and the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) trained Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) recruits. He had also disclosed that he hails form Faisalabad in Pakistan and was trained at an LeT camp to target Indian security forces.
The NIA has announced a reward of Rs 5 lakh each for the two absconding terrorists, whose sketches were prepared with Naveed's help. They have been identified as Zargham alias Mohammad Bhai and Abu Okasha.
