NIA makes second arrest in Nagrota terror attack case
The National Investigation Agency has arrested a second person in connection with the Nagrota attack which killed seven soldiers. Tariq Ahmed Dar, aged 34 was arrested by the NIA based on the disclosure made by Muneer-ul Hassan Qadri who was arrested earlier.
The NIA says that Tariq a timber dealer from Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir had assisted the Pakistani terrorists of the Jaish-e-Mohammad in carrying out the attack.
His revelations corroborate disclosures made by the previously arrested accused Muneer of Kupwara who had revealed that he along with other valley-based operatives were in touch with the JeM leadership in Pakistan and had received a freshly infiltrated group of three Pakistani terrorists a day before the attack.
They subsequently stayed at a hotel in Jammu and then left the attackers at Nagrota outside the Army camp late at night and proceeded to the Kashmir valley.
NIA officials tells OneIndia that the accused was arrested with active assistance of the J&K police.
