NIA search in Rajouri over Reasi pilgrim bus attack | India News

JAMMU: NIA conducted Sunday searches at multiple locations across Rajouri district of J&K in connection with the June 9 terrorist ambush on a pilgrim bus in Reasi that claimed nine lives and left 41 wounded.
“NIA took over the investigation on June 15 on orders from the ministry of home affairs. It searched five locations linked to hybrid terrorists and overground workers (those who provide logistical support),” said an NIA spokesperson.Hybrid terrorists are radicalised people who execute acts of terrorism and then seamlessly blend back into their regular routines without leaving any discernible trace.
These sites were identified by Hakam Khan, a local suspect arrested for allegedly providing shelter and food to the terrorists, and aiding them in hiding and navigating the area undetected.
In addition to NIA, security teams from Army, paramilitary forces, and J&K police are scouring the hilly, forested terrain of Jammu division following four attacks over three days (June 9, 11 and 12) in Reasi, Kathua and Doda districts. Security forces have killed five terrorists so far, all suspected to be Pakistanis. American M4 carbines, AK-series assault rifles, grenades, IEDs, and assorted ammunition were found on the slain terrorists.
“NIA has also started examining the seized material to unravel the conspiracy,” the agency spokesperson said.
