In a massive development which has been learnt by Republic TV, sources have said that ISI of Pakistan had shifted Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar from Rawalpindi military hospital to a hideout in Kotghani in Bahawalpur few days before Indian Air Forces bombed terror-havens of the terror outfit.
It is being reported that Pakistan feared strong action from India in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack, and hence, the Jaish chief was shifted to a location where he was given medical treatment owing to his serious condition.
Republic TV has been told by the sources that following massive pressure by India on the global arena after the Pulwama terror attack, in which 40 CRPF jawans lost their lives, Masood Azhar was moved out from Rawalpindi and taken to a safe location where he is being provided with heavy security.
The recent intel accessed by Republic TV has blown wide the lie of Pakistan and its Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi.
Only a couple of days back, Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi made a stunning admission that the JeM chief was residing in the country, but was undergoing treatment in an hospital in Rawalpindi given his health condition.
"He is in Pakistan, according to my information. He is unwell to the extent that he can't leave his house, because he's really unwell," Qureshi told CNN when asked about Azhar.

Masood Azhar's JeM was the orchestrator of the Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF jawans lost their lives. The terror outfit claimed responsibility of the attack, even as Pakistan government shied away from accepting any responsibility.
A few days later, the Indian Air Force conducted an operation by flying inside the Pakistan territory and destroying three bases of the Jaish-e-Mohammed, including the one in Balakot.
Apart from this, India also submitted a dossier to Pakistan in which evidence and proofs were given regarding the role of Masood Azhar in the Pulwama terror attack.
India found support from countries across the world, with a number of nations coming forward and joining hands to make sure the JeM chief is designated as a 'global terrorist'.
