The National Investigation Agency (NIA) charged three Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) terrorists on Saturday in connection with the snatching of service weapons from security forces in Kishtwar, Jammu, and Kashmir.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has filed a charge sheet against HM terrorists Jaffer Hussain, Tanveer Ahmed Malik, and Taraq Hussain Giri before a Jammu judge, according to an NIA spokesperson. The charges against the other three terrorists implicated in the crime, Osama Bin Javed, Haroon Abbas Wani, and Zahid Hussain, who were killed in clashes with security forces, will be dropped, according to the official.
According to the official, a case was filed on March 8, 2019, in the Kishtwar district of Jammu and Kashmir about the snatching of the escort in charge of DC Kishtwar’s service rifle.
On November 2, 2019, the NIA took over the investigation. According to the official, the current case was discovered to be one of several terrorist actions perpetrated by Hizbul Mujahideen in Kishtwar between 2018 and 2019. “The aim of all of these terror attacks was to resurrect militancy in Kishtwar by looting weapons and attacking influential members of a specific group in order to instil fear among the community’s members,” the official said.
Osama Bin Javed, Haroon Abbas Wani, and Zahid Hussain were also killed in encounters with security forces in 2019 and 2020, according to the official. They were HM jihadists in the Doda-Kishtwar belt who were responsible for many terror attacks in Kishtwar.
Jaffer Hussain, Tanveer Ahmed Malik, and Taraq Hussain Giri, according to the official, were supplying logistical assistance and organizing shelter for the HM terrorists involved in the various terrorist incidents.
