Raids at the residence of Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Faisal Munir

On Thursday, NIA officials raided the residence of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Faisal Munir, the main accused in the drone shooting case, who was arrested on July 18. Let us tell that about 1 lakh cash was dropped through drones along with each consignment of weapons for terrorists. The Jammu and Kashmir Police has made several arrests in recent months in connection with the drone case.

On 20 July, the Jammu Police busted a terror module, which was receiving multiple consignments of dropped arms and ammunition via drones controlled through Pakistan. J&K Police arrested three persons identified as Habib, Faisal Munir and Miyan Sohail. Habib was acting as a receiver of several consignments of weapons and ammunition dropped through a network of drones and illegal terror-collaborators controlled through Pakistan. Habib and Faisal were inspired by Munir. The consignment of drones received by Habib was further taken by him to Jammu and delivered to different persons at different places in Faisal’s direction.

Faisal Munir was in touch with Pakistan-based handlers for more than two-and-a-half years and has found over 15 drone consignments that were dropped at several places in Samba and Kathua.
