NIA steps up action against terrorism, issues non-bailable warrants against 13 terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir

JAMMU, Mar 2: On Thursday, the court of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in Jammu issued non-bailable warrants against 13 active terrorists of Kishtwar who are currently operating from Pakistan and Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK). The warrants were issued at the request of Kishtwar Police, who approached the NIA Special Court for issuing non-bailable warrants against the accused for their active involvement in terror activities aimed at creating unrest in the erstwhile Doda district and other parts of Jammu and Kashmir.

The terrorists identified as Shahnawaz Kanth alias Munna alias Umer of Hullar, Nayeem Ahmed alias Amir alias Gazi of Jamia Masjid, Mohd Iqbal alias Bilal of Kichloo Market, Shahnawaz alias Nayeem of Chirool Padyarna, Javid Hussain Giri alias Muzamil of Kundali Pochal, Bashir Ahmed Mughal of Jugna Keshwan, Gazi-ul-Din of Jugna Keshwan, Sattar Din alias Rajab alias Saifullah of Jugna Keshwan, Imtiyaz Ahmed alias Dawood of Banderna, Shabir Ahmed of Kither Bonjwah, Mohd Rafig Keen of Patnazi Bonjwah, Muzaffer Ahmed of Semna Colony Zewar and Azad Hussain of Affani Padder presently residing in PoK, Pakistan. All of them are residents of PoK.

According to Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Khalil Poswal, the terrorists mobilized sleeper cells and pushed them into Jammu and Kashmir in connivance with secessionist and separatist leaders for waging war against the Government of India with the nefarious design of seceding Jammu and Kashmir from the Union of India. The warrants have been issued in the NIA case which stands charged under relevant sections in the Police Station, Kishtwar.

Further investigation in the case is underway, and the authorities are working towards bringing these terrorists to justice. The issuance of non-bailable warrants against these active terrorists highlights the resolve of the Indian government in cracking down on terrorism and maintaining peace and order in the region.
