New Delhi, Nov 7: Alpha-3 was a control room that was set up jointly by the Pakistan army and the Lashkar-e-Tayiba to create the Kashmir unrest.
Investigations conducted by the National Investigation Agency have revealed that this was a control room operating out of Muzaffarabad through which the entire unrest was controlled.
The NIA has sufficient proof that Alph-3 was being operated jointly by the Lashkar-e-Tayiba and the Pakistan army. Every move of the terrorists and protestors in Jammu and Kashmir was monitored from this control room, investigations have shown.
Recently the NIA had arrested an operative by the name Bahadur Ali. He gave out all details regarding the operation being conducted by the Lashkar-e-Tayiba and the Pakistan army. He specifically speaks about the unrest in the Valley and how it was being controlled by the control room which was titled Alpha-3.
Ali was launched into the Valley to stand behind the protestors and hurl grenades. During the unrest, Kashmir witnessed a large number of stone pelting incidents. Terrorists were launched into the Valley to stand behind the protestors and hurl grenades at the security forces, Ali also confessed.
In a 12 minute confession video, Ali says that he was provided with topography sheets, GPS and grid references. The entire operation looked very military like, NIA officials say. Going by the operational plan, it is evident that the Pakistan military had a big role to play.
A chargesheet would be filed soon in this regard in which the Pakistan army's role would be nailed. The NIA is piecing together all evidence available and will also make a mention of the Alpha-3 control room which will further help nail the close ties between the Lashkar-e-Tayiba and the Pakistan army.
