Pulwama Attack: NIA Arrests Father-Daughter Duo

SRINAGAR: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested a father-daughter duo from Hakripora village of Pulwama district on Tuesday morning in the Pulwama blast case.

The development comes days after NIA arrested 22-year-old Shakir Bashir Magrey, who allegedly tracked the movement of CRPF convoys and helped assemble the bomb used in the attack that killed 40 CRPF personnel in February last year.

“The arrests come with the Pulwama case being stuck for several months now as all the identified accused are either dead or in Pakistan. Even though NIA identified the attacker and traced the car used in the attack to its owner, it could not move beyond as the attacker died in the suicide attack and his local handler and car owner were killed in an encounter,” Indian Express reported.
