Al Qaeda-backed terrorist Irfan Wani got his consignment of eight grenades from Jammu. Five of Wani’s associates had, before him, reached New Delhi to carry out an attack during the Independence Day celebrations. Where are they?
Security forces might have arrested Irfan Hussain Wani who had plans to bomb Delhi, but his accomplices are moving around scot-free.
Pursuing a bachelor’s degree from a government degree college in Srinagar, Wani is one of several Muslim extremists with decent educational backgrounds that have made news in the recent past.
Wani, 21, is affiliated to Ansar Gazvat ul Hind, the terror outfit headed by Zakir Musa. He was arrested while on his way from Jammu to New Delhi by bus. In Jammu, he was putting up temporarily at a private hotel.
Highly placed sources told MyNation that Wani got his consignment of eight grenades from Jammu. Source said further that five of Wani’s associates had, before him, reached New Delhi to carry out an attack during the Independence Day celebrations.
A team of Delhi Police has reached Jammu and another is questioning Wani to find his terror links in Delhi that may extend beyond his network of five other terrorists.
Source told MyNation that Wani was in touch with two of the top commanders of Ansar Gazvat ul Hind, including Zakir Musa’s deputy Rehan.
