Two arrested for providing shelter to Terrorist Naveed


Srinagar: Two people have been arrested in South Kashmir for allegedly providing shelter to Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Naveed before he attacked the BSF convoy in Udhampur killing two BSF jawans.

Javaid Ahmed Parray, a driver allegedly let Naveed stay at his house in Chursoo Awantipora and ferried him to the spot on the Jammu-Kashmir highway where he attacked the BSF convoy.

Another named Fayaz Ahmed, a welder in Traal was arrested two days ago for being a suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative.

The investigation of the case has now been handed over to the BIA and has been brought to Srinagar to establish the route taken by Naveed to Udhampur.

He is expected to identify the hideouts used by him after he crossed into Jammu and Kashmir's Kupwara district from Pakistan and also the other LeT cadres he met while planning the attack.
