Confirming that youths are being brainwashed and trained in camps in Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistan Administered Kashmir (PaK), a Pakistani resident militant of Lashker-e-Toiba (LeT) Mohammad Waqar Awan alias Chotta Dujana on Wednesday said that trainees are being told that security forces are committing atrocities on the people of Kashmir valley.

Waqar, who was arrested by recently by a joint naka party of Army, Special Operation Group (SOG) of Jammu and Kashmir police and CRPF was today paraded before the media persons at Police Control Room (PCR), Srinagar on Wednesday.

Waqar said he is a resident of Mohalla Miana, Minanwali of Punjab in Pakistan and had infiltrated into Kashmir in July 2017.

“ I was told that atrocities were being committed on the people of Kashmir by security forces”, he adding but during his stay in Kashmir he saw no such thing.

He told reporters that he received training for four months at a camp in Muzaffarabad. I was told that atrocities are committed on children and women by security forces who are not allowing people to offer prayers in mosques and houses of Muslims are destroyed. However, I found that the conditions were different in Kashmir what they are being told in Pakistan.

Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbagh Singh said Waqar’s arrest and confession before the media is a “live evidence” for Pakistan as to how youths are being brain washed in Pak, prepared for militancy and then sent here. However, he said he was not involved in any attack in Kashmir.
Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police Dilbag Singh, who also briefed the media, said Awan’s “confession” is evidence of how Pakistan is sending youths here for militancy.

He said Pakistan always wants some live evidence and we will share that evidence. A Pakistani militant is here since the last two years and an active member of LeT and involved in many activities.

His coming in front of media and sharing the details, is live evidence for Pakistan as to how they train the youth there in militancy and send them here for joining Jaish-e-Mohammad or Lashkar-e-Toiba,” DGP said
The Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) of Baramulla, Abdul Qayoom, said Waqar had infiltrated in the valley in July 2017. Waqar was active in Kupwara and Srinagar after his infiltration. However, when he was returning to Baramulla, he was intercepted at a naka checking.

However, the driver of his vehicle rammed it into police vehicle and sped away. The police chased them for about 1.5 km where they left their vehicle on the road and tried to flee. However, they were apprehended. He said a pistol and some other things were recovered from the Pakistani militant when he was arrested.

The driver, a conduit, is a Kashmiri, he said adding we will share further details when we have them.

He said Wqar was given the task to revive militancy in those areas which had been declared militancy-free.
SSP said he mostly visited areas around Srinagar-Baramulla highway and few areas in downtown – the interior areas of the city here. We are identifying and pinpointing more people involved with him,” SSP said.
