Srinagar Hospital Attack: Scientific evidence helped ascertain culprits, says Munir Khan

Naveed was arrested by forces in south Kashmir's Kulgam district in June 2014. He is said to be calling his devotees and guests without hindrance to his barrack and giving them amulets and money from a welfare fund operated by him from within the jail.

Giving details of the conspiracy, Khan revealed that the militants were plotting an attack on the police party to free Naveed but their initial plans included ambushing the police van when Naveed would be transported to court for the hearing.

On February 6 they came to Srinagar and took their positions at various points in SMHS hospital with a motorcycle and vehicle.

"We are left with Naveed and Hilal Ahmad Rather".

He said that one of the Hizb-ul-Mujahideen militants Hilal Rather also participated in the act and "he is the one who provided pistol to Naveed and both fired at two cops, resulting in their death later".

Jat's escape, police sources said, will motivate the LeT, which has faced a rout after its commander Abu Ismail was killed in an encounter previous year. "We are looking for them", Khan saud.

Jackie Speier of California told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Tuesday. "I don't think it's a particularly good idea", Kennedy said. He says the Pentagon is cooperating with the White House and plans to present some options for the suggested event.

Rather and Bhat had brought a auto and a motorcycle as their means of getaway, he said.

We are not terrorists. He further added that the suspects were identified and raids were conducted. "It took them four months to plan this and we got them in one day", he said.

He said after the killing of top LeT militants like Abu Dujana, Abu Qasim, and Ismail, Naveed has potential to be next LeT commander. "He visited Central Jail on different pretexts".

"However, the final planning to affect the conspiracy was done just a few weeks back at the residence of Tika Khan", he said. The officials said that the police were able to wipe out on the four accused through the help of CCTV camera footage and conversations on social media.

Paddar, a Hizb commander, hailing from Shopian, is one of the two surviving militants who often posted pictures with Burhan Wani, the Hizb commander who was killed in 2016, triggering a people's uprising.
