JeM Chief Masood Azhar admits managing Nagrota terror attack
New Delhi: Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar confessed on Tuesday that he had carried out the November 29 Nagrota terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir, in which 7 armymen were martyred.
The confession comes a day after the NIA named Azahar in its chargesheet in the Pathankot terror attack case. The admission of managing Nagrota terror attack, however, has caused trouble for Pakistan.
JeM Chief Masood Azhar, in his article in JeM's Alqalam magazine, dated December 6, stated, "This week's publication was delayed as the attack in Nagrota was still in action. I managed Nagrota, the military camp in Nagrota was the target."
Terrorists, on November 29, attacked an army camp in Nagrota and claimed lives of 7 Army personnel. Retaliating to the attack, the security forces had killed three terrorists.
The security forces had recovered few documents from the slain terrorists which certified their link with the terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed.
With Azhar's confession, Pakistan's denial of JeM's involvement in the attack has turned out to be false.
This is yet another evidence that Pakistan is a 'safe-house' for terrorists who possess ill intentions for India. Not just Masood Azhar, Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed is also wandering in Pakistan freely and is scheduled to hold a rally in Quetta, Balochistan soon.
