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.
