    Tariq Ahmed Shah facilitated all the terrorists at his house for sheltering and for planning of the heinous attack on the CRPF convoy.

    His house was also used by the above mentioned terrorists for preparing and recording of video of Fidayeen Adil Ahmed Dar, which was released by Jaish-e-Mohammad soon after the Pulwama attack.

    Tariq's wife, Naseema said that the terrorists visited their home, but they were unable to say no as they were armed. I requested them to leave, but they refused, she also said. Once my husband even fled from home.

    The terrorists, who were armed however said that they would stay only one night.

    This development comes in the backdrop of the NIA last week arrested an Over Ground Worker (OWG) identified as a Shakir Bashir Magrey, a resident of Kakapora, Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir.

    Bashir a furniture shop owner is accused of providing shelter to the suicide bomber, Adil Ahmad Dar.

    He is also accused of providing logistics to the bomber. The Pulwama attack had claimed the lives of 40 CRPF jawans.

    It was in the year 2018 that Bashir was introduced to Dar by a Pakistani terrorist, Mohammad Umar Farooq. During his interrogation, he said that on numerous occasions he had collected arms, ammunition and cash and delivered it to those involved in the Pulwama attack.

    He also said that he had harboured Dar and Farooq in his house from 2018 onwards until the attack that took place in February 2019. He assisted them in the preparation of the Improvised Explosive Devices, he also revealed.

    His shop is located near Lethpora bridge, and as advised by Mohammad Umar, he started conducting reconnaissance of the movement of CRPF convoy on Jammu-Srinagar Highway in January 2019, and informed Mohammad Umar and Adil Ahmad Dar about it.
