Probe indicates Lashkar behind Uri terror attack


, November 7 (KIP):-The latest probe by the Nation Investigation Agency (NIA) has revealed that the attack launched on Uri Army camp, in which 19 soldiers were killed on September 8 was not the task achieved by activists of Jaish-e-Mohammad but by the terrorists belonging to the Lashkar-e-Toiba.  The new finding is the result of a  “blue diary” recovered from the site that indicates that Lashkar activists were behind the attack and not those from Jaish. The Investigation Agency (NIA) is basing its investigations on a “blue diary” recovered from one of the three Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists who were killed while attempting to storm an Army camp in Kupwara on October 6.  The diary could prove to be a vital piece of evidence as investigators suspect the September 18 attack on the Army camp in Uri too was carried out by LeT operatives, though the Army was quick to name the Jaish-e-Mohammad barely hours after the attack. The diary contains the name of a publication house near the residence of LeT founder Hafiz Saeed at Muridke in Pakistan.  A senior NIA official said, “The name of the publication house is not the only clue. The diary has other details as well linking the terrorists to LeT and Hafiz Saeed. Several notes in Urdu suggest that the terrorist, who has identified himself as Faidullah in the diary, was living in the Muridke camp and had received training there.”  The diary was recovered by an NIA team which took over the investigations on October 9, three days after the three terrorists were killed in an encounter..(KIP)
