Udhampur attack: NIA looking for woman who accompanied Pak terrorists

Nomen was killed in retaliatory fire by paramilitary personnel, while Naveed was captured alive by people at a nearby village where he fled after the attack.

In a new twist to investigations into the terror attack on a BSF convoy on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway in early August, the NIA has started looking for a woman who had accompanied the two Pakistani Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists, Mohammad Naveed and Abu Nomen, from the Valley to Narsu nullah in Udhampur district.

Her name figured during the interrogation of truck driver Shabzar Ahmed Bhat of Nai Basti, Qaimoh in Kulgam district, who has ferried both Naveed alias Usman and Nomen from Khudwani in Kulgam district to Narsu nullah, where they attacked a BSF bus, killing two paramilitary personnel and injuring nearly a dozen others.

NIA officials have refused to divulge the name of the woman but sources said she was the wife of one Khurshid Ahmed of Kulgam. Owing allegiance to the LeT, she and her husband reportedly drove a car ahead of the truck ferrying the terrorists towards Jammu, so that they could warn them against any police check-post en route on the highway.
