NIA files chargesheet against LeT terrorist Bahadur Ali for conspiring to carry out attacks in India

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) filed a chargesheet at the NIA Special Court at Patiala House against captured Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Bahadur Ali.

The agency said, ” The case relates to conspiracy hatched by Lashkar-e-Taiba, based in Pakistan, to commit terror attacks in India.”

The NIA had earlier cited Ali’s confessional video to claim that the unrest in the Kashmir Valley was being orchestrated by Pakistan-based LeT which had played a major role in fuelling the unrest, triggered by the encounter killing of a militant leader.

Ali, a fourth-class dropout, who hails from Jahama village of Raiwind in Lahore, was arrested from village Yahama in Mawar area of Qalamabad, Handwara, in North Kashmir on July 25, 2016. The army had claimed to have recovered three AK-47 rifles, two pistols and Indian Rs 23,000 from his possession.

According to NIA, Ali was trained at a LeT camp in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) to carry out various activities, including map reading and operating GPS devices.
