New Delhi: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) will quiz the captured Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Bahadur Ali for more leads in the Uri terror attack probe. Ali was captured in July for instigating trouble in violence-hit Kashmir. A decision to this effect was taken by the Union cabinet on Wednesday.

Bahadur Ali could serve an important link in identifying the other four attackers. “Ali is expected to throw more light on the functioning and future designs of several Pakistan-based terror organisations like Jais-e-Mohammad, Lashkar-e-Toiba and Jamaat-ud-Dawaah,” said NIA officials.

According to them, Ali during his earlier investigations had told the investigators about the terror outfits of Pakistan planning to carry out more open attacks on the Indian Army and other vital installations in the days to come.

It may be recalled that the attack on the army camp, on September 18 last, took a toll of at least 18 Indian Army officers while they were sleeping. The investigation team will also visit the site of the attack shortly to collect more evidences.
