New Delhi: An NIA investigation has revealed that the Pakistani terrorists who attacked a BSF convoy in Udhampur last year went undetected for over two months despite infiltrating through the Line of Control (LoC).
A probe was conducted, the report of which stated that four Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists stayed with local contacts between June and August 2015, before they carried out the strike killing two Border Security Force (BSF) jawans and injuring 13 others.

National Investigation Agency (NIA) in its charge sheet filed in a Jammu court on Thursday has established the sequence of events and also revealed the existence of a “network of local contacts and terrorists of the LeT”, who provided transport and logistic support to the terrorists.

The LeT terrorists infiltrated the LoC on June 2, but were received by their local aides later, according to NIA. NIA has established that terrorists met their Indian aides at a pre-determined tree near Baba Rishi, District Baramulla on June 6 and 7, 2015.

A GPS device seized by the agency from a truck used by the Indians “receivers” shows that it was taken to the said spot. The charge sheet states that a report from CERT-IN corroborates the fact that two Indian aides travelled to the pre-determined tree with an intention to receive LeT’s four Pakistani members.

NIA has prosecuted eight people, including Naveed and seven Indians, who helped the LeT terrorists carry out the attack and were part of the conspiracy. “The group of four LeT terrorists, namely Naveed, Mohammed Bhai, Abu Noman and Abu Okasha crossed the LoC on or around June 2, 2015. The fence of the LoC was cut by Abu Noman,” NIA charge sheet says.

On August 5, 2015, a BSF convoy was ambushed by a group of terrorists near on the Jammu-Srinagar highway in Udhampur, Jammu and Kashmir. “The probe revealed that training of LeT cadres in Pakistan and PoK, their infiltration into India and the operation of the support networks in India are part of a larger conspiracy by LeT to wage war against India,” the NIA charge sheet says.
