LeT man spills beans on Pak terror factory
Abdul Qayum, who was arrested by BSF from border area in Akhnoor, gives details of his training at Lashkar camp in PoK
Srinagar: Pakistan- backed terror syndicate was exposed again after Border Security Force ( BSF) arrested a top Lashkar- e- Taiba commander when he was trying to infiltrate into the Indian side of International Border (( IB) at Pragwal sector of Akhnoor area in Jammu division.
Abdul Qayum, 32, of Pul Bajuan village in Sialkot, Pakistan, was arrested on Friday when he was trying to negotiate Border Fence to infiltrate into Indian Territory. Initially Qayum went round in circles to mislead the interrogators claiming that he was a ghost- buster who could ‘ control the spirits’.
However, after sustained interrogation, Qayum gave up and disclosed the whole terror game being played in Pakistan. “On questioning, he revealed that in 2004, he underwent training in Daura e- Aam camp of LeT at Mansera, Muzaffarabad, Pakistan- Occupied Kashmir. Thereafter, he actively worked for LeT and remained associated with distribution of Jihadi literature and magazine such as Gazwa and Jarar as well as collection of funds for LeT,” said Dharmendra Pareek, deputy inspector general of BSF, Jammu frontier.
Qayum has collected Rs 50 lakh in Pakistani currency and handed it over to LeT Amir ( chief) Mujahid Bhatt for Sialkote area. “He further revealed that ultimately he realised that Jamat – u- Dawa and Falah- e- Insaniyat, the so- called charitable organisations of LeT are actually accumulating money for jihadi activities,” Pareek said.
Qayum further confessed that he realised it late that no kin of any terrorist leader such as Hafiz Mohommad Saeed and Syed Salahudin have participated in jihad.
“Poor children of Pakistan are being brain washed to carry out militant activities on the false pretext of atrocities on Kashmiri Muslims by India,” Qayum told interrogators.
Qayum is the seventh Pakistani ultra to have been apprehended alive since the Udhampur terror attack in August last year. In fact, Qayum is the second Pakistani militant to have been arrested in last two months in Jammu and Kashmir. Abdul Qayum
