NIA Raids At 16 Places In Jammu And Kashmir In ‘ISIS-Voice Of Hind’, Bathindi IED Recovery Cases

NIA Raids At 16 Places In Jammu And Kashmir In ‘ISIS-Voice Of Hind’, Bathindi IED Recovery Cases

New Delhi, October 10: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Sunday carried out searches at 16 places in Jammu and Kashmir in connection with two cases– ‘ISIS-Voice of Hind’ case and the ‘Bathindi IED recovery’ case.

The anti-terror agency carried out simultaneous searches in various districts in the Union Territory with the assistance of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and Jammu and Kashmir Police.

The NIA had also conducted searches at two locations in Karnataka’s Bhatkal and arrested key accused Jufri Jawhar Damudi in the ‘ISIS-Voice of Hind’ case.

The case was registered on June 29 this year in connection with the conspiracy of the proscribed militant organization the Islamic State (ISIS) to radicalise and recruit impressionable Muslim youth in India to wage violent jihad against India.

NIA said that ISIS militants operating from various conflict zones along with ISIS cadres in India have created a network by assuming pseudo-online identities wherein ISIS-related propaganda material is disseminated for radicalising and recruiting members to the fold of ISIS.

The NIA had conducted multiple searches in Jammu and Kashmir on July 11 this year in the same case and had arrested three accused– Umar Nisar, Tanveer Ahmad Bhat and Rameez Ahmad Lone, all residents of Achabal area of Anantnag district.
A cyber entity ‘Abu Hazir Al Badri’ a key operative of ISIS who is involved in the translation of ‘Voice of Hind’ to South Indian languages and its further dissemination was identified as Jufri Jawhar Damudi, and arrested on August 6 this year in a joint operation of NIA and Karnataka Police.

The agency said that the cyber ID was also used to radicalise and recruit people.

“Jufri Jawhar is the younger brother of Adnan Hasan Damudi who was arrested for ISIS-related activities in 2016 and is currently under detention in a separate NIA case,” the agency said.

Jufri Jawhar Damudi was in touch with ISIS leadership, currently operating out of Afghanistan-Pakistan (Afg-Pak) region who provided him propaganda material and also gave directions for its dissemination.

“For this purpose, Jufri had created multiple pseudonymous IDs on encrypted chat platforms and was also a member of various online propaganda channels of ISIS,” the agency added.

During earlier searches in the ‘ISIS-Voice of Hind’ case, NIA claimed to have seized a large number of digital devices such as mobile phones, hard disks, SD cards etc.

However, the second case in which the NIA has been conducting raids is linked to Bathindi IED recovery in which the agency had carried out searches on September 21 this year at eight locations in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag, Baramulla, Kulgam, Srinagar, Doda and Kishtwar districts.

The case was initially registered on June 27 this year at Bahu Fort district Jammu relating to the recovery of five kg IED from a Lashkar-e-Taiba militant in Jammu’s Bathindi area on the same day.

The conspiracy by LeT was aimed at causing an explosion in Jammu using the IED. NIA had re-registered the case on July 19, and had earlier arrested three persons in this case.

The investigation has revealed that Pakistan based handlers of proscribed terror outfit LeT and their associates based in J-K were planning militant activities in the Union Territory using the pseudo-acronym ‘The Resistance Front’, an offshoot of LeT, so as to maintain plausible deniability.—(ANI)

Over 50 Agitated Sarpanches, Panches Resign En Masse In Ramban Jammu And Kashmir

Over 50 Agitated Sarpanches, Panches Resign En Masse In Ramban Jammu And Kashmir

Banihal/Jammu, Oct 9: Over 50 sarpanches and panches have resigned en masse in two blocks of Ramban district in Jammu and Kashmir over various issues, officials said on Saturday.

They have resigned alleging lack of promised empowerment, unnecessary interference and their side-lining by the administration during the ongoing public outreach programme of the central ministers, officials said.

Amid the en mass resignation by rural civic body representatives, Peoples Democratic Party took a pot-shot at the BJP government, saying the “cosmetic normalcy and pomp and show being projected (in the Union Territory) stands punctured.”

Officials, however, said the district panchayat officer Ashok Singh held a meeting with the representatives of the agitated members and requested them to withdraw their resignation, seeking to assure them that all their genuine grievances would be addressed at the earliest.

About 50 sarpanches and panches, belonging to Banihal and Ramsu blocks, submitted their resignation en-mass to concerned Block Development Council chairpersons on Friday after an emergency meeting, the officials said.

Sarpanches Ghulam Rasool Mattoo, Tanveer Ahmad Katoch and Mohammad Rafiq Khan alleged that the promises made to them by the government have only remained on the papers.

They alleged that they are being ignored and face unnecessary interference in developmental works while the promised participation of 30 government departments in Gram Sabhas has proved a “crude joke”.

Referring to the visit of central government ministers under the public outreach programme, they said the local administration is not honouring their protocols and only selected representatives are invited to have meetings with visiting ministers to mislead the government.

“Only one sarpanch among 12 was allowed to meet the visiting Minister of State for Rural Development in Banihal. Mattoo was also not allowed to meet the Railway minister to raise public issues,” Katoch said, adding they are facing humiliation as they are unable to fulfil any promise made to the public.

Mattoo alleged that contractors are running the show on the ground as the government failed to implement the Panchayati Raj and they are not allowed to take part in the tendering process for different projects.

Sharing a two-page resignation letter of the panches and sarpanches on Twitter, PDP spokesperson Mohit Bhan wrote, “55 Panches & Sarpanches resign en masse. Cosmetic normalcy pomp & show being projected stands punctured. The government failed in securing these elected representatives & neither could empower them to carry out public welfare works.

“The government”s claim of taking democracy to its grassroots stands exposed by this mass resignation. Panches and Sarpanches were ignored during the recent Union ministers’ visit & the administration continues to treat them as decorative pieces,” the PDP leader said.

Ramban district president of J&K Panchayat Conference, Mohammad Iqbal Katoch said a group of agitating panches and sarpanches met the district panchayat officer Ashok Singh on Saturday and apprised him of their grievances.

“The officer requested them to withdraw their resignation with an assurance that all their grievances will be addressed in shortest possible time,” Katoch, who was also present during the meeting said.

He added that another meeting is scheduled to take place on Monday to sort out the issues raised by the panches and sarpanches in their joint resignation letter.—(PTI)

Eastern Ladakh Standoff: India, China To Hold Military Talks On Sunday

Eastern Ladakh Standoff: India, China To Hold Military Talks On Sunday

New Delhi, Oct 9: India and China will hold another round of high-level military talks on Sunday with a focus on making some forward movement in the disengagement process in the remaining friction points in eastern Ladakh, government sources said.

The talks are scheduled to start at 10:30 AM at the Moldo border point on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh, the sources said on Saturday.

The Indian side is expected to seek disengagement as soon as possible in the remaining friction points besides pressing for resolution of issues in Depsang Bulge and Demchok.

The 12th round of talks had taken place on July 31. Days after the talks, the two armies completed the disengagement process in Gogra, which was seen as a significant forward movement towards the restoration of peace and tranquillity in the region.

The 13th round of talks is taking place in the backdrop of two recent incidents of attempted transgressions by the Chinese troops — one in the Barahoti sector of Uttarakhand and another in the Tawang sector in Arunachal Pradesh.

Indian and Chinese troops were engaged in a brief face-off near Yangtse in the Tawang sector of Arunachal Pradesh last week and it was resolved within few hours following talks between commanders of the two sides as per established protocols, people familiar with the development said on Friday.

Last month, close to 100 soldiers of China”s People”s Liberation Army (PLA) transgressed the LAC in the Barahoti sector.

The transgression took place on August 30, and the Chinese troops returned from the area after spending few hours.

Chief of Army Staff Gen MM Naravne on Saturday said the military build-up by China in the eastern Ladakh region and new infrastructure development to sustain the large-scale deployment are a matter of concern.

He also said if the Chinese military maintains the deployment through the second winter, then it may lead to an LoC-like situation (Line of Control) though not an active LoC as is there on the western front with Pakistan.

The Indian delegation at Sunday”s talks is to be led by Lt Gen PGK Menon, the Commander of the Leh-based 14 Corps.

The border standoff between the Indian and Chinese militaries erupted on May 5 last year following a violent clash in the Pangong lake areas and both sides gradually enhanced their deployment by rushing in tens of thousands of soldiers as well as heavy weaponry.

As a result of a series of military and diplomatic talks, the two sides completed the disengagement process in the Gogra area in August.

In February, the two sides completed the withdrawal of troops and weapons from the north and south banks of the Pangong lake in line with an agreement on disengagement.

Each side currently has around 50,000 to 60,000 troops along the LAC in the sensitive sector.—(PTI)
