Early Times Report
Kishtwar, May 18: A startling revelation made by an arrested terrorist that a conspiracy was hatched in Pakistan to frame the "encounter specialist" Sub-Inspector, Shiv Kumar Sharma alias Sonu, in a militancy case has rattled the Police department.
Police sources said the LeT terrorist Abdul Rashid code Abdullah, son of Mohammad Iqbal Hargah of Tanta, who was arrested by Doda police on May 13, 2017 in connection with the attack on police post, Tanta, at Gundow, during interrogation has revealed that he was in touch with Khubab and Pakistani LeT commander Abu Akasha, both presently camping in Pakistan. The two Pakistan-based terrorists asked Abdullah to eliminate Sonu. After their unsuccessful attempt to kill Sonu and his bodyguard Mohammad Ayub in 2013, LeT again planned to kill him as he (Sonu) had killed several terrorists in encounters in over one and a half decade. He himself was injured several times in these encounters.
Pak terrorist Abu Akasha got an IED planted in Bhaderwah town a few years back to eliminate him (Sonu) while he was travelling with his family. In the blast, he and his family had a narrow escape, but a civilian was killed.
In 2013 Abdullah again established contact with Khubab who again tasked him to eliminate Sonu. After attacking police post, Tanta, Abdullah along with his four associates had shifted to Sartangal in Bhaderwah town of Doda, where Sonu lives.
Before the arrest of Abdullah and his men, they had been conducting a recce of Sonu's house. With the revelations made by him, questions are being raised over the 2013 police investigation during which the IO had tried to frame Sonu in a militancy case.
Sources said the arrested Abdullah was part of the Lashker group that was behind the beheading of sepoy Hem Raj in Rajouri district of Jammu province on January 8, 2013.
The Doda
Deadly terrorist!
Arrested terrorist was part of the Lashker group that was behind the beheading of sepoy Hem Raj in Rajouri district of Jammu province on January 8, 2013.
police in 2013 had arrested Abdullah, Akhter Hussain, son of Showket Ali Magray of Tanta, Mohammad Rafi, son of Mohammad Ibrahim of Patnazi Bonjwa, Altaf Hussain, son of Nazir Ahmed of Joura Gandoh (at present Thathri) and Mohammad Yaqoob, son of Fateh Mohammad Gujjar of Bathree Gandow and recovered one AK rifle, its three magazines, 143 rounds, one Chinese pistol, its one magazine and five rounds, two Chinese grenades, one pouch and two wireless sets from them.
As per police sources, the task of grenade hurling was given to Altaf Hussain, son of Nazir Ahmed of Joura Gandow who had confessed to the crime and disclosed that the task of selective killings of police personnel, civilians and prominent persons in Bhaderwah and Thathri areas of the district was given to Rafi and Akhter who had also confessed to their crime. On the basis of Abdullah's statement, who was influenced by Pak-based terrorist Khubab, originally a resident of Thatri. Abdullah, after remaining an active militant, had surrendered before Doda police in 2008 along with a pika gun and other arms and ammunition.
Abdullah had also tried to win the police confidence by offering to work as a source for them in 2012. To prove his point that he was in touch with militants across the border, he had given details about LeT groups operating in Rajouri and Poonch districts. He had also given police and intelligence agencies a mobile chip of post-beheading of Hemraj.
Sources said he was in constant touch with Lashker group before his arrest in 2013 and was in the process of shifting them to Doda and Kishtwar districts for reviving militancy before Doda police intercepted them. Security forces had got suspicious of Abdullah and his men when on the night of April 27, 2013, some unknown militants had thrown a grenade at police station, Thatri, which had fallen just short of the police station.
