Jammu: National Investigation Agency (NIA) gave a big blow to Pakistan’s sinister plot of stoking trouble and reviving terror in the border belt of Poonch and Rajouri by arresting Jammu and Kashmir Ghaznavi Force (JKGF) terrorist from Jammu airport today.
An arrested terrorist identified as Shahid Naveed of the Mendhar area was returning from Gulf when NIA sleuths got a whiff of his flight schedule. The moment his flight landed, NIA officials reached the airport and arrested him.
Naveed along with Sher Ali, who was arrested in a similar manner in the month of February was running a terror network from Gulf countries.
For the last few months, Naveed was working in one of the companies there. During the process, he got in touch with officials of Pak spy agency inter-service intelligence (ISI), who lured him to work for them.
Following their instructions, Naved and Sher Ali, used their local contacts in Mendhar and Balakote area to revive terror-related activities in the border district of Poonch and Rajouri.
While sitting in Gulf, Naveed started running a terror network. He was in touch with Pakistan-based ISI handler Sultan who had assigned him the task of supplying arms and ammunition to different jihadi outfits like Lashkar-e-Toiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad, and Ghaznavi Force and also used his network of guides to facilitate infiltration of Pakistani terrorists into Poonch district.
Naveed besides indoctrinating young minds was polluting their blood by supplying drugs. Naveed is one of the main facilitators of terrorist activities of various terrorist groups involving facilitating infiltration of terrorists, smuggling of arms and ammunition, narcotics from Pakistan Occupied Jammu and Kashmir to Indian Territory from Balakote area of Poonch district.
Earlier he and Sher Ali were involved in sending two Pakistan terrorists from the Dabbi area of the Balakote sector on Nov 24 and 25 at the behest of Pakistani handler Sultan.
The two terrorists of the Jammu and Kashmiri Ghazanavi force were later killed in an encounter on December 13 last year in the Poshana area of Surankote.
