NIA Arrests JeM Operative Involved in J&K Terror Conspiracy

Srinagar: In a continued effort to combat terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) made a significant arrest on Sunday.

Mohammed Ubaid Malik, an alleged operative of the Jasih-e-Mohammad (JeM) group, was arrested for his suspected involvement in a terror conspiracy case. According to the NIA, Malik, hailing from the Kupwara district, maintained constant communication with a JeM commander based in Pakistan.

During the investigation, evidence revealed that the accused had been sharing classified information with the JeM commander, including details about the movements of troops and security forces. The NIA also uncovered various incriminating documents that indicate the accused’s participation in terrorist activities within the Union territory.

The arrest is related to a case initiated by the NIA in June of the previous year, targeting the conspiratorial actions of cadres and Over Ground Workers (OGWs) associated with multiple designated terrorist organizations. These conspiracies were orchestrated under the direction of JeM commanders operating from Pakistan.

According to the NIA’s findings, the directions provided involved the trafficking and dissemination of substantial quantities of narcotics, cash, weapons, and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), including sticky bombs and magnetic bombs controlled remotely. The IEDs and explosives were often transported using drones and then assembled locally to carry out terrorist attacks primarily targeting minorities and security personnel in Jammu and Kashmir.

The NIA is currently conducting further investigations into this matter to gather additional information and evidence.
