New Delhi: The national investigation agency filed a charge sheet against Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar and his brothers over the Pathankot airbase terror attack.
According to the sources, NIA filed the charge sheet highlighting the role of terror attack group in spreading terror attacks in India and referred to the wicked plans outfit.
The charge sheet was also named as Azhar’s brother Rauf Asghar who was blamed of immediately recoding a video message claiming the responsibility of the terror attack and appreciating the rolr of Azhar, who was released in exchange for passengers of hijacked Indian Airlines plane IC-814 in 1999.
Charge sheet will probably be used in different parts of India and at international fora to emphasize the ro;r of Masood Azhar terror strike held out in January 2 this year.
Launching of a diplomatic offensive against the Jaish and its chief Masood Azhar has become very important after China continued to stonewall efforts of India to get UN approve against the terrorist and his group.
The Home Ministry had given sanction to NIA to file the charge sheet against Azhar, his brother and the two handlers-Qashif Jan and Shaid Latif – of the four terrorists, under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA). The four terrorists, after entering India from Bamiyal area of Gurdaspur, had carried out the strike at Pathankot IAF base killing eight people including seven personnel of IAF and NSG.
