During an investigation, it was revealed that Zakir Musa was trying to fuel the 'Referendum 2020' campaign, demanding 'Khalistan' to take on board radicalised Sikh youth to carry out nefarious design against the country
Punjab: A shocking revelation made by four Kashmiri students arrested by the Punjab Police and Special Operations Group (SOG) of Jammu and Kashmir police from Jalandhar, divulged that chief of terrorist outfit Ansar Gazwat Ul Hind Zakir Musa visited Punjab to expand the terror base outside Kashmir.
An Over Ground Worker (OGW) who was arrested from Kashmir, was continuously in touch with Zakir Musa, and it was on his direction that he provided them weapons to carry out a major terror attack.
During an investigation, it was revealed that the AGH cadre was trying to fuel the "Referendum 2020" campaign, demanding 'Khalistan' to take on board radicalised Sikh youth to carry out nefarious design against the country.
They had plans to carry out an attack on major security installations in New Delhi, ahead of general elections to terrorise the NCR. It was a part of this plan that the consignment of weapons reached Jalandhar from Kashmir and was to be taken to New Delhi by the end of the year.
The police are trying to connect the dots which could take the investigation to its logical conclusion. A senior official, who was part of the raid carried out inside the hostel of CT Group of Institutions, told MyNation that all four arrested Kashmiris were friends of Zakir Musa's cousin Rafiq Bhat and he was their classmate during school days.
The police are also working on the "honey trap" angle as more arrests were made by Punjab Police after the four Kashmiri students revealed the involvement of a woman in this case. The Punjab Police is likely to make more arrests soon based on revelations made by the arrested students during the investigation.
