Pampore Attack Had Links to LeT: Sources

According to intelligence sources, the two terrorists who were nuetralised during the Pampore attack had links to the terrorist group, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT). As per the data collected, these terrorists had also infiltrated the region last year.

The intelligence agency has also identified these terrorists – Maaz and Chota Waleed. Few conversation between the two were intercepted in Pulwama.

Reports also stated that the commander for the two is Abu Dujana. He was last seen at a protest rally in Kashmir earlier this year.

The three-day gun battle between the Army and terrorists at Pampore’sEntrepreneurship Development Institute (EDI) building ended on Wednesday with the death of two Lashkar-e-Taiba men.

“We’ve recovered their bodies and the search operation in the building is almost complete,” an Army officer said, adding that while one terrorist was killed on Tuesday evening, another was shot on Wednesday. There was no third terrorist, as believed earlier, the officer said.

Unlike in February this year, when two officers, two jawans, and one civilian were killed in the Lashkar attack on the same building complex, the operation this week did not witness any Army casualty; only two security personnel were injured on Monday.

“The EDI building is used to provide vocational training to young Kashmiris, and its being targeted by terrorists laid bare their aim of choking employment avenues in the valley so that the youth are disaffected enough to pick up stones and guns,” said an analyst.

The stand-off, which saw the use of over 50 rockets, machine guns, and mortar shells, and the hostel building is all but destroyed. Residents living in its vicinity said grenade blasts were heard from the site regularly.
