The security forces have streamlined the security grid in a bid to track down the main accused in the Amarnath yatra attack. This would help the security who have launched a massive manhunt for Abu Ismail who plotted the attack on the yatris on Monday in which seven persons had died.
Investigations being into the Amarnath yatra attack have shown that the operation was coordinated by the Lashkar-e-Tayiba and Hizbul Mujahideen. Investigations also confirmed that Abu Ismail was part of the attack and he was one of the two Pakistanis on the scene.
There was a quick denial from the Lashkar-e-Tayiba following the Amarnath yatra attack. While the writing is on the wall that the attack was staged and executed by its commander in South Kashmir, Abu Ismail, the outfit still went ahead and denied it. Worse, it blamed the Indian agencies for the attack.
Abu Ismail, the Category A terrorist who carries a bounty of Rs 10 lakh on his head had directed his overground operatives to find an easy target during the Amarnath yatra. Based on his instructions, first a reconnaissance for three days was conducted.
It is now confirmed that a terrorist by the name Abu Ismail masterminded the attack on the Amarnath yatra in which seven persons were killed. Ismail is part of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba and is a resident of Pakistan occupied Kashmir.
The investigations being conducted into the Amarnath yatra attack have zeroed in on the role of Abu Ismail, a commander of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba. Hailing from Pakistan occupied Kashmir, Ismail was put in charge of the outfit in South Kashmir.

The supplementary charge sheet filed by the Maharashtra ATS against Lashkar-e-Tayiba operative Abu Jundal reads more like a story and till date is one of the most comprehensive charge sheets filed in this case.
Running into over 13000 pages with 56 volumes, the supplementary charge sheet details the attack on 26/11 right from the days of planning to the final assault. Basically what the charge sheet would tell you is the importance of Abu Jundal and how big he was in the set up which carried out the attack. However there is more to be added into this charge sheet and that would happen only when India manages to access the voice samples of the other accused persons who were guiding this attack on India from Pakistan.
