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.
A week before the Amarnath yatra commenced, there was a specific intelligence warning about the same being under threat from the Lashkar-e-Tayiba. The alert was too specific in nature and even warned that it would the Lashkar which will carry out the attack.
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 Jammu and Kashmir police suspect the role of Lashkar-e-Tayiba in the Amarnath yatra attack. It was an attack plotted in Pakistan and executed in India, the police have said. Intelligence Bureau officials say that the yatra was targeted to spread communal tension in India. The targeting of a Gujarat registered bus also adds another dimension to it, the officer also said.
The police of Jammu and Kashmir have identified Bashir Lashkari as the man who led the attack at Anantnag in which 6 policemen were martyred. The attack was carried by LeT led by Bashir Lashkari. We will track him down and make sure justice is done, said J&K DGP S P Vaid.
An analysis of the video suggests that the militants are from the LeT.
