New Delhi [India], Oct 25 (ANI): The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday filed a charge sheet against a Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorist held after an encounter with the security forces on March 20 and 21 in the Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir.
The terrorist, identified as Zabiullah alias Hamza, a resident of Multan in Pakistan, has been charged under sections 16, 18, 20, 38 of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), 25 (1A) of Arms Act, and 14 A of Foreigners Act.
"Investigation carried out by NIA has proved that Zabiullah is a Pakistani national and belonged to the LeT. Evidence collected from the scene of crime clearly linked the AK 47 recovered from the possession of Zabiullah with the empty cartridges recovered from the site of encounter. Zabiullah also pointed out his place of residence in Pakistan, the training camps of LeT, the launching pads and the route taken by him to enter into the Indian territory during his questioning," the NIA said in a press release.
Zabiullah was among the six LeT terrorists who infiltrated into the Indian territory through the Line of Control (LoC) in March.
During the encounter with the security forces, five terrorists were gunned down while Zabiullah managed to escape. However, he was later arrested from Jugtiyal in Kupwara. (ANI)
