Srinagar: A Pakistani terrorist captured three days ago was on Saturday brought to the Kashmir Valley to identify those who helped him reach Udhampur where he was arrested, an official said.

Usman alias Qasim Khan of Faisalabad, a member of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terror outfit, was brought to the valley from Jammu region by road, an intelligence officer said.

Usman was overpowered by villagers after he and a fellow Pakistani terrorist shot dead two Border Security Force (BSF) troopers on the Jammu-Srinagar highway in Udhampur district on August 5.

The captured Pakistani is now in the custody of the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

While NIA officials reached here on Friday from Delhi, Usman has been brought to establish the route he used to reach Udhampur and to identify accomplices who facilitated his passage to Udhampur, the officer said.

Usman is expected to identify the hideouts used by him after he crossed into Jammu and Kashmir’s Kupwara district from Pakistan and also the other LeT cadres he met while planning the attack.

The NIA has taken over Usman’s interrogation to know more about the LeT network in Jammu and Kashmir and elsewhere in India.

Usman is now reportedly lodged in an office of the Special Operations Group of the Jammu and Kashmir Police in Srinagar.

A British court has convicted a mother of forcing her daughter to marry a relative almost twice her age in Pakistan, in a first successful prosecution of its type in England.

A jury at Birmingham Crown Court on Tuesday convicted the mother of four of duping her then 17-year-old daughter into travelling to Pakistan on the pretext of a family holiday in 2016 and forcing her to marry there, the BBC reported.

The mother was found guilty of two counts of forced marriage and was scheduled to be sentenced.

The court heard the girl had been entered into a “marriage contract” with the man years before in Pakistan and became pregnant at 13. The victim had an abortion on returning to the UK, with her doctor reporting his concerns to social services.

Prosecutors said the girl’s mother told them that her daughter and the man were just “two teenagers who had sneakily had sex” after she was referred, the BBC said.

The girl was tricked into travelling to Pakistan again in September 2016 and was forced by her mother to sign marriage papers.

When the daughter protested against the marriage, her mother threatened to burn her passport and assaulted her.

The mother was also convicted of perjury after she lied about the incident in the High Court.
