Reports quoting anonymous National Investigation Agency (NIA) sources said that a massive manhunt has been launched in Jammu and Kashmir for Abu Qasim, named as a top Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) commander who allegedly handled Mohammad Naved, the captured militant during Udhampur attack.

Reports said NIA believes Qasim has been operating freely in the Kashmir since 2011 and is suspected to run LeT operation in Kashmir. “He is also suspected to be the handler of all Pakistani terrorists in J&K – it is he who coordinates with all terrorists and assigns targets,” the reports said.

Notably, Naved reportedly admitted yesterday during a polygraph test in Delhi that he is from Pakistan and was trained at LeT camp there. “NIA also believes that Qasim is aware of the location of Okasa and Mohd Bhai, close aides of Naved who had carried out the terror attack on a BSF convoy in Udhampur earlier this month along with Noman,” the reports said.
