Lashkar-e-Toiba commander Abu Qasim, who was behind the killing of eight armymen at Hyderpora ahead of the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s visit to Valley in June 2013, had sent the two terrorists to Jammu who attacked a BSF convoy killing two jawans and injuring 10 others at Narsu nullah near Chenani on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway.

Spilling the beans right from their infiltration into the state from across the border to their stay in Valley and onward journey towards Jammu, Lashkar terrorist Mohammad Naved, who was captured alive by villagers after the attack on BSF bus, has told interrogators that he was part of a four member group who sneaked into Kashmir Valley from across the Line of Control 12 days ago.

Senior officers from state police refused to say anything except that he was still changing statements. He cannot be relied upon until his interrogation was complete.

Naved was accompanying another terrorist Nomen who had opened fire at the BSF bus on the highway on Wednesday. While Nomen was gunned down in the gun battle, Naved fled from the spot only to be apprehended by villagers nearly three kms away.

While Naved hailed from Faislabad, Nomen was Bhawalpur, both Pakistan.

Earlier in the day, Naved was sent to five days of police custody by a local court at Chenani.

A five member NIA team headed by a DIG level officer reached Jammu to question Naved at the Joint Interrogation Centre. Senior police officers, however, remained tight lipped over his disclosures saying that he was still making different statements.
