In his confessional video, the arrested terrorist urges terrorists to shun the road to violence, & return to their loved ones
The Hush Post: Recently arrested by Baramulla Police, a Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorist has praised the Indian Army and exposed Pakistan‘s role in disturbing peace in the Valley. The terrorist, who seems to have had a change of heart, has also urged others who were with him to shun the road to violence and return to their families.
In his confession, recorded on video, this LeT terrorist has said that the Indian Army could have killed him, but they instead saved his life.
This LeT terrorist Aijaz Gujri, arrested on April 30 after the killing of three civilians, made an appeal to other terrorists “who are on the wrong road” to return to their families. Gujri reportedly said in the video that those who have taken up arms have left their homes and lives, Zee News reported on Thursday.
“They have been living in jungles. I appeal to them that they should come back home to their parents,” Gujri said in the video. Addressing another terrorist Nasir Amin, he said, “I am asking Nasir Amin that his mother is very ill and he should come back.”
He said that they first opened fire at the Army troops, but the Indian soldiers did not return the fire. “I hid myself in bushes where I was arrested, where Army could have killed me but they saved my life,” Gujri is shown saying in the video.
Gujri also exposed the role of Pakistan in disturbing peace in the Valley. He said, “The day I was arrested, we were told by Pakistan to create violence in the Valley. We were told that Army is doing brutalities while it’s not true. It’s a conspiracy which was hatched in Pakistan.”
The security forces had arrested four terrorists and seven Over Ground Workers (OGWs) in separate raids in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla following the killing of the civilians. The raids were conducted in north Kashmir’s Old Town Baramulla and Sopore of Baramulla district, the report said.
The four terrorists were involved in recent killing of three youths – Asif Ahmad Sheikh, Haseeb Ahmad Khan and Mohmmad Asgar, residents of Kakkar Hamam in Baramulla.
On April 30, bullet-ridden bodies of three youths in their early 20s, were recovered from Khanpora Baramulla, the report said.
