Interpol issues Red Corner Notice, provides India with chance to hit back
Early Times Report
Jammu, May 17: National Investigating Agency, probing the terror attack on Pathankot airbase carried out by Pakistan sponsored terrorists, has built a strong case against the Jaish terrorist Maulana Masood Azhar, his brother Abdul Rauf and two others, who are believed to have masterminded the attack.
Sources told Early Times NIA after getting the non-bailable warrant issued against Azhar and his associates, has persuaded the International Police Association (Interpol) to issue a Red Corner notice against the terrorist Azhar and his accomplices.
A defence analyst while reacting to the development said, "Time has come for Pakistan to prove its sincerity as the entire world knows that Azhar and his brother are present in Pakistan. The neighboring country should handover both the accused to NIA so that investigations in the case move ahead."
Sources said the NIA had sought warrant against Azhar, his brother Abdul Rauf, Kashif Jan and ShahidLatif, two handlers of JeM terrorists who had infiltrated into India through Bamiyal sector of Punjab in the wee hours of December 30, 2015 to launch the terror assault.
The JeM terrorists had initially hijacked a taxi and killed its driver Ikagar Singh before commandeering another vehicle which carried a Punjab Police officer Salwinder Singh, his friend Rajesh Verma and cook MadanGopal on the intervening night of December 31 and January one.
The terrorists, four of whom have been identified as Nasir Hussain (Punjab province), Abu Bakar, (Gujranwala), Umar Farooq and Abdul Qayum (both from Sindh), entered into the IAF base and carried out a suicide attack in the wee hours of January 2.
Insiders revealed that Interpol issuing a Red Corner notice against Azhar and his associates has put investigating agencies in Pakistan in a tight spot as till now they were claiming that "no evidence" has been found against self styled Chief of JeMMoualnaMasoodAzhar, his brother and others. "Pakistan has been left with no other choice other than handing over the accused to India," said an official.
An analyst said, "Since the day terrorists carried out a strike at Pathankot, Pakistan has been claiming that it is cooperating with India and it has lodged an open FIR in the case. India even allowed the Joint Investigating Team (JIT) of Pakistan to visit Pathankot airbase and collect the evidence. Despite India allowing JIT of Pakistan to visit India the neighboring country has maintained silence over allowing NIA team to visit Islamabad."
He said, "It seems Pakistan has backtracked from its promise. The Pakistani officials know it very well that their people were involved in the attack and they were backed by a few elements present in the rank and file of the Pakistan agencies."
A retired army official said, "We lost seven brave soldiers in the attack but we were not allowed to retaliate. Had we retaliated and taught these terrorists a lesson they would have never dared to look towards our country again."
He said, "If Pakistan fails to handover MoulanaMasoodAzhar and his accomplices despite Red Corner Notice India should not waste any more time and hit back. NIA has collected enough evidence against Azhar and his brother we can enter into their country and drag them out from their rat holes. If United States could enter Pakistan and gun down Osama-Bin Laden why cannot we do the same? I fail to understand what's our political leadership waiting for? It seems one more attack."
