New Delhi: Security forces on Thursday said they had nabbed a Pakistani suicide bomber of the Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) outfit in Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir. The army and police of J&K caught Mohammad Sadiq Gujjar, 17, and exposed his terror link.
On 25th of November, he had carried out an attack on an army camp in Kupwara district. He was accompanied by three of his associates who were killed in the attack. Gujjar, son of Walid Mohammad Gujjar, was a resident of Sialkot Daska in Pakistan. He has five brothers and two sisters.
Gujjar was lured by his school friend, who is also a JeM militant, to take to militancy. He got three months training in a JeM camp by Masood Azhar and was living in JeM chief’s town.
“He has told his interrogators that he set fire to an oil depot inside the army camp and destroyed several vehicles before he was ordered by his colleagues to leave. The fidayeen told his interrogators that the JeM militants were launched from Athmuqam in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and was asked to attack any army camp near the LoC (Line of Control)”.
The group, with the help of GPS, crossed the border on foot on November 24 night and continued to walk till they reached the Tanghdar army camp after six-seven hours.
After the attack, Gujjar fled to nearby forests and was in hiding for three days. He was asked by his handlers to go to Kupwara. He changed his clothes and boarded a van from Tanghdar, with his weapon concealed. He reached Kupwara and befriended some people who helped him to travel to Baramulla where he was arrested.
The terrorist was part of the four fidayeen who carried out the attack on the army camp at Tanghdar on November 25.
