"This terror crime was done by Lashkar-e-Taiba and the conspiracy was hatched in Pakistan," he added.
He further said that investigators are in search of the four accused, involved in the killing of journalist Shujaat Bukhari. Soon, the police would approach the court and obtain a non-bailable warrant against the accused.
