The National Investigation Agency (NIA) filed the chargesheet in the 2019 Pulwama attack case and has named Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar, his brothers Abdul Rauf Asghar and Ammar Alvi, slain JeM militant Mohammad Umar Farooq, suicide bomber Adil Ahmed Dar and other militant commanders operating from Pakistan.
These are apart from the six arrested accused in the case.
The NIA has filed a 13,500-page chargesheet in the special NIA court in Jammu along with the pictures and digital evidence of the Pulwama attack. An NIA official told Indo Asian News Service: “The agency filed a chargesheet (on Tuesday) against Azhar, Asghar, Alvi, their slain nephew Farooq, six arrested accused, and absconding accused Sameer Dar in the Pulwama attack case at a Jammu special NIA court.”
The NIA said that it has also named two Pakistani nationals – Mohammad Kamran and Mohammad Ismail alias Saifuddin, both IED experts. The official said that the agency has prepared a watertight case against the people named in the chargesheet along with all the irrefutable evidence, including their chats and call details to highlight the role of Pakistan in the 14 February, 2019 attack in which 40 Central Reserve Police Force troopers were killed.
The official said that this attack was a plot hatched by the Pakistan-based group to project the attack as part of the home-grown militancy in Kashmir. The NIA has also accused several top commanders of the terrorist group in its chargesheet.
