The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has said  that one of the arrested in the Pulwama attack case had used his Amazon online shopping account to procure chemicals or making IEDs, batteries and other accessories

He has been identified as 19 year old Waiz ul Islam.

“During initial interrogation, accused Waiz ul Islam has disclosed that he used his Amazon online shopping account to procure chemicals for making IEDs, batteries and other accessories on the directions of the Pakistani JeM terrorists. He also personally delivered the items to the JeM terrorists after procuring the incriminating material online as a part of the conspiracy to carry out the Pulwama attack,” the NIA statement said.

Forty Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed in the deadly terror attack in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district last year after a suicide bomber rammed an explosive laden car in the paramilitary force’s convoy.

The total number of people arrested in the case now stands at five.

Earlier, a father-daughter duo and a close aide of the suicide bomber were arrested in two separate operations.
