Once again there are inputs that Al Qaeda commander Zakir Musa is hiding in Punjab.
There are specific inputs from the CID, IB and Military Intelligence that Musa is hiding in the state. There is an alert about Moosa’s presence in the districts of Bathinda or Ferozepur.
His pictures have been released. There are also inputs that he could be hiding incognito wearing a Sikh turban to give police a miss.
About a month ago as well, Punjab Police was on high alert after receiving inputs that Al-Qaeda commander Zakir Musa could be hiding in Punjab. Posters of Musa, the Kashmir unit chief of Al-Qaeda, were put up in several places in the state then.
Gurdaspur SSP Swarandeep Singh had earlier said that there were specific inputs about Musa’s movements near Amritsar.
Musa heads the terrorist outfit Ansar Gazwat ul Hind. He is in-charge of sending recruits to J&K.
Musa had reportedly joined Al-Qaeda after having a fallout with Hizbul Mujahideen. He is one of the most wanted terrorists in J&K. Another input then came that six to seven Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists may have entered Punjab.
