NEW DELHI - Indian Army 's biggest lie was exposed today as it killed the mastermind of the Pulwama Attack.
As per Indian media the main plotter of the February 14 attack on a paramilitary convoy in South Kashmir’s Pulwama was killed in a security operation late on Sunday night.
Top Indian Military officials announced on Monday, saying forces had wiped out at least 14 members of the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) over the last three weeks.
Earlier Indian Military had claimed that the main plotter was in Pakistan.
The army crackdown on the JeM group follows IAF failed air force operation on February 26.
The strikes triggered a sharp escalation in tensions with Pakistan – which made an air operation in retaliation.
Sunday night’s operation led to the deaths of Mudasir Ahmed Khan, who is believed to have headed the JeM unit active in Pulwama.
“In last 21 days we have been getting after the Jaish. We have eliminated 18 militants so far, of them 14 being from Jaish.
Six of them were main commanders,” said Lt Gen Kanwal Jeet Singh Dhillon, identifying Khan as the second “main conspirator” in the attack on the Central Reserve Police Force convoy last month in which 40 troopers had died.
The other main conspirator was identified as Kamran, who was eliminated on February 18th, Dhillon added. Dhillon was flanked by Inspector General of Police Kashmir, SP Pani and IG CRPF, Zulfiquar Hassan.
