Republic TV exclusively accessed the interrogation report of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist, Naveed Jhatt, who escaped after opening fire in Srinagar’s biggest hospital — Shri Maharaja Hari Singh (SMHS) hospital — on Tuesday, where two Jammu and Kashmir policemen have been martyred.
According to the interrogation report, Naveed went to Dar Alok Mureed Kay for Islamic education. LeT top commanders Hafiz Saeed and Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi would regularly visit the camp. Naveed was provided training by Saeed and Lakhvi.
The interrogation report states Naveed was trained in a camp near Neelam river for two years. Naveed was trained in the jungles of Mansehra in Pakistan. He received training on how to handle weapons like AK 47, pistol, grenade, rocket launcher and sniper.
In October 2012, Naveed, along with 7 others, were launched to valley through Kupwara sector. He came with Abu Musa, Qari Hanzulla, Abu Umar, Abu Hamza, Hafiz Maaz, Abu Sumama and Abu Anas, according to the interrogation report. They were getting directions from Pakistan occupied Kashmir.
In the interrogation report, the investigation officer has called Naveed a 17-18-year-old Pakistani national who is very hard-core and dreaded terrorist who has carried out various attacks. It is recommended that he be detained for a maximum period of time.
Earlier, speaking to media, Srinagar Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Imtiaz Ismail Parray said a prisoner named Abu Hanzulla alias Naveed Jhatt fired shots and escaped from police custody.
Naveed snatched weapons from police and fired at the protection party while he was being brought from Central Jail along with five other prisoners, said the SSP.
"Six detainees were being brought from Central Jail. Out of them, one snatched weapons from police and fired at the protection party. The prisoner's name is Naveed. He is probably an outsider," he told media.
While the police nabbed the five prisoners, Naveed managed to flee away from the spot.
Naveed was arrested a few months ago from Shopian district by the Army and police.
