The National Investigative Agency (NIA) to issue a red corner notice to Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar, his brother Abdul Rauf and two others for allegedly conspiring to carry out terror strike on the strategic Indian Air Force base in Pathankot.
According to a report, NIA will issue a red corner notice to four JeM terrorists including Masood Azhar.
A couple of days back, NIA also secured non-bailable arrest warrants against the four JeM terrorists.
A special NIA court on April 8, based in Mohali issued the ‘open-ended non-bailable warrant’ against Azhar, his brother, main handlers Kashif Jaan and Shaid Latif for allegedly entering into a criminal conspiracy with JeM terrorists for carrying out a terror strike on the IAF base.
The strategic base was attacked by terrorists of banned JeM during the intervening night of January one and two in which seven security personnel were killed. Four bodies of terrorists were recovered from the encounter site which lasted for nearly 80 hours.
The special court issued the arrest warrant after weighing the evidence presented by NIA before it which included telephonic conversation between the terrorists and the Jaish handlers like Jaan and Latif.
