ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: A day after Indian forces claimed to have captured an alleged Pakistani terrorist in Jammu and Kashmir, the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) record has rejected Indian allegation and revealed that he is not a Pakistani.
The official sources said that the captured terrorist Usman alias Muhammad Naveed is not a Pakistani as his information was not found in the NADRA record.
On Wednesday, Usman was caught by the Indian border security force (BSF) near Udhampur in Jammu and Kashmir after terrorists carried out an attack on a BSF convoy.
The Indian media claimed that Usman belonged to Pakistan’s Faisalabad city and he arrived in Indian held Kashmir 12 days ago.
It was further claimed that Usman is a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LT) militant, and he entered the Jammu region along with a fellow terrorist identified as Momin Khan. But Momin Khan was killed in retaliatory fire by the BSF personnel.
“It’s fun doing this… I came to kill Hindus,” Usman told investigators according to India media.
“I am from Pakistan, my partner was killed in the firing but I escaped. Had I been killed, it would have been Allah’s will. There is fun in doing this,” he was quoted as saying.
Meanwhile, the Indian National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday will begin investigation into the matter involving Usman who, according to Indian media, told that he came to kill Hindus and targeted the annual Amarnath Yatra.
