NIA files charge sheet in Pulwama terror attack case

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday filed a charge sheet in February 2019 Pulwama terror attack case in which it named 19 people for carrying out the attack at Pakistan’s behest. The 13,500 pages charge sheet was filed before a special NIA court in Jammu.

The charge sheet also names people who were arrested from Pulwama for providing shelter and shooting the last video of Adil Dar, the suicide bomber who used around 200 kgs of explosives in the vehicle that rammed into the CRPF convoy near Lethpora in South Kashmir.

The “blind case” was solved by the NIA after piecing together the electronic evidence and statements of terrorists arrested in different cases. As many as seven people have been arrested so far by the NIA in this case.

The agency in its chargesheet dsid that the conspiracy to attack the CRPF convoy in Pulwama in February 2019 was hatched by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Maulana Masood Azhar and his two brothers Rauf Azghar and Maulana Mohammed Ammar, and was executed in Kashmir by his nephew Ummer Farooq,
