New Delhi, Mar 18:Terror mastermind Masood Azhar had undertaken a month-long sojourn to England to collect funds for militants operating in Jammu and Kashmir and received Rs 15 lakh (Pakistani currency), though he got a “very poor” response while travelling to Sharjah and Saudi Arabia before arriving in India in 1994.
Azhar, the founder of Jaish-e-Mohammad, responsible for a series of terror strikes in India including the attack on Parliament in 2001 and a CRPF convoy in Pulwama last month, had procured a Pakistani passport in his real name and original address in 1986 and had extensively toured African and Gulf countries where he realised that the Arab nations were not sympathetic to the “Kashmir cause”.
New Delhi, Mar 17:If Pakistan was sincere in tackling terror, then it should at least hand over to India Dawood Ibrahim, Sayeed Salahudin and other terrorists who are Indian citizens and residing in that country, government sources have said.
They said Pakistan has failed to take any credible action against Jaish-e-Mohammed and other terror groups even after the dastardly Pulwama attack.
New Delhi, Mar 16:Furthering the probe into terror financing in Jammu and Kashmir, the Income Tax department has unearthed property papers, jewellery and undisclosed cash to the tune of crores of rupees.
The department searched at least five locations in Kashmir. “These actions are part of the department’s continued drive against use of black money by disruptive elements in the state. The operations also send a message of deterrence and obviation to those intending to vitiate the democratic process of free and fair elections,” the IT department said.
New Delhi, Mar 16:To avert a possible threat to the Kaladan multi modal transit transport project, the armies of India and Myanmar conducted a coordination operation against insurgents between February 17 and March 2, sources said.
New Delhi, Mar 15:In the evidence provided to Pakistan on the Pulwama attack, India has cited a mobile number that was used to claim responsibility for the attack.
India has prepared a detailed dossier laden with evidence to show that it was the Pakistan sponsored Jaish-e-Mohammad which carried out the attack. Moments after the Pulwama attack, the JeM claimed responsibility for the same through a WhatsApp number7006250771.
New Delhi, Mar 14:What is Ghazwatul Hind? The National Investigation Agency, while interpreting the term said that Ghazwatul Hind is an appeal to conquer India. Those attaining martyrdom in the process will reach heaven, the NIA also said.
