New Delhi: Pakistani terrorist Mohammed Naved Yakub, who was caught by the police in the Udhampur Terror attack, now wants to train gun on those in Pakistan who sent him on a fidayeen mission to India. According to the Hindustan Times, it was revealed during questioning that the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) operative seems to have been administered a psychotropic substance before the attack on a BSF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir's Udhampur district on August 05. He was nabbed by the villagers on the same day. The investigation revealed that Naved was asked to take a white tablet before the attack “which we believe must be some kind of psychotropic substance that dulled his senses,” said an investigator.
Naved, a Class 5 dropout and a compulsive gambler, has said that he didn’t have any direction in life till he was spotted by a LeT maulvi in a Faisalabad mosque, reports the daily.According to the investigator, Maulvi Bashir later became Naved's mentor, instilled a sense of purpose in his life, and made him a ‘jehad baby’."In a very typical manner of Lashkar, he was shown videos of atrocities committed on his Muslim brethren in India, particularly in Kashmir. After three courses, the first in physical fitness, the second in handling weapons and the last on carrying out a suicide attack, Naved was launched by Lashkar across the border on June 02,” he added.“His elder brother and brother-in-law both are college lecturers, therefore in the typical middle class family of Faisalabad, Naved, was written off as a bad apple much earlier. His family doesn’t seem to have made much effort in inquiring about his absence after he joined the LeT,” said the investigator. Naved has recognised on Google Earth his locality, a factory where he worked before being a part of the LeT, and the terror organisation's offices he visited.
