Poonch Terror Attack: Now another new revelation has come to light in the attack on the army vehicle in Poonch. There is news of the involvement of 6 people of Lashkar-e-Taiba in the attack, out of which the entire family of one was a part of the conspiracy. Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbag Singh informed about this. He told that these 6 terrorists had helped in logistics including arms, ammunition, hand grenades and cash with complete planning.
According to the DGP, 221 suspects were detained after an army truck was ambushed at Tota Gali in Poonch on April 20. Out of these, about half a dozen people have also been formally arrested. Police has identified 6 accused in the Poonch attack case. Out of which Nisar Ahmed, Farid Ahmed and Mushtaq Ahmed have accepted that they are from Mendhar sub-division.
Accused Nisar’s family involved in conspiracy
The DGP said that in order to cause maximum damage, these terrorists used 7.62 mm steel core bullets and IEDs to target the army truck. Describing the accused Nisar Ahmed, the DGP said that in the 1990s, being an overground worker, the police had picked him up earlier as well. For this reason, he was under suspicion this time also. During interrogation, it was revealed that not only he himself, but all his family members were also involved in the conspiracy of this attack.
For the last two-three months, Nisar Ahmed and his family were providing food, water and other facilities to the terrorists. Pakistan had sent a consignment through drone which was delivered by Nisar to the terrorists. The consignment included cash, arms, ammunition and hand grenades.
The accused camped in the forests of Bhat Dhurian
The Director General of Police says that the disclosure of this module has now cleared the way forward. Now the whereabouts of the accused and how the logistics were arranged etc. will be investigated. The DGP said that the attackers are expected to be camping in natural caves in the forests of Bhat Dhurian for two to three months. This is being said because the attack was done from near the forest itself. At present, further investigation is being done.
