Jammu & Kashmir SIA: Nexus Between Jaish-e-Mohammad And Punjab Based Gangsters

The SIA – State Investigation Agency of Jammu and Kashmir, has filed a chargesheet against 5 accused in a terror funding case registered in November 2021, where ₹43 lakh were recovered from a Kashmir based vehicle. The accused include 3 Punjab based gangsters and Pakistani Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist. 

With this, a nexus between Jaish-e-Mohammad and Punjab based gangsters has come to the fore. On Tuesday, the chargesheet was filed in the special NIA court against all 5 accused. This is the second chargesheet filed by the State Investigation Agency (SIA) of J&K in the terror funding case. 

According to the media reports, the chargesheet includes Jaish-e-Mohammad commander Ashiq Nengroo alias Ashiq Molvi’s name, a resident of Rajpura, Pulwama in Kashmir, who currently operates from across the border, Muzammil Ahmad Malik, the second accused, who also belongs to Pulwama. While, Jaideep Dhawan alias Deep, Ravi Kumar alias Nona and Amarbir singh alias Gopi Mahal – these three are the residents of Punjab. 

As per the report of NDTV, an official stated, “the inquiry exposed that Parvez and Farooq had conspired with Malik and Nengroo and enabled the transit of terror funds, which were to be further handed to JeM terrorists operating in the valley for launching terror acts in India.”

Two suspects, Mouzzam Parvez and Umar Farooq, both citizens of Pulwama’s Dalipora village, who had obtained the money from Amritsar in Punjab, were named in the first chargesheet, which was submitted on May 14 this year. Now, this second chargesheet has revealed a nexus between Jaish-e-Mohammad and Punjab based gangsters.
