JAMMU: The Jammu & Kashmir police on Thursday filed a chargesheet against six hardcore overground workers (OWG) of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) in a “money and technology transfer” case registered in April this year.
The case was registered after one of the accused was arrested in RS Pura with several SIM cards, memory cards, and hawala money meant for OGWs and terrorists.
After his arrest, police raided Kot Bhalwal jail in April and recovered incriminating material, including mobiles phones, SIM cards and memory cards, which were used for communication of terrorists and OGWs from inside the jail with sleeper cells of JeM outside the jail.
The six accused against whom the chargesheet has been filed are Muzaffer Beigh, Farhan Lilu, Gulam Hassan, Ehsaan Farooq, Owais Ahmed, and Pakistani terrorist Abdul Rehman, who is currently lodged in Kot Bhalwal jail.
Investigating agencies said a JeM hardcore OGW, one Muzaffer Ahmed, was in touch with the Pakistani terrorist Abdul Rehman lodged in the Indian jail.
“Muzaffer and five others chargesheeted remained constantly in touch with JeM handlers in Pakistan and active militants on secret messaging platforms for carrying out subversive and militant activities in Kashmir valley,” a police statement said.
Further investigation in the case is in progress and supplementary challan would be produced in due course, police said.
