The National Investigation Agency (NIA) filed a charge sheet on Pulwama terror attack case in which it named 19 people. The 13,500-page charge sheet was filed before a special NIA court in Jammu.
Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief Maulana Masood Azhar, his brothers Abdul Rauf Asghar and Ammar Alvi, and nephew Umar Farooq are among those named in the charge sheet by the agency.
Officials say that the charge sheet has irrefutable evidence – technical, material and circumstantial – on Pakistan’s role in the attack. It cites the roles of the JeM leadership and the arrested accused in the attack and has details like chats, calls details of terrorists.
NIA probe has revealed that Pakistan used Adil Ahmad Dar, a local resident who rammed an explosive-laden car into a CRPF convoy in Pulwama, as a suicide bomber to project the attack as a result of a home-grown militancy against “India’s occupation of Kashmir”, one of the officers said.
