LUCKNOW/NEW DELHI,

A HIZBUL Mujahideen terrorist has been arrested by border guarding force Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) from Sonauli in Uttar Pradesh along the Indo-Nepal frontier. The Sashastra Seema Bal said it apprehended Naseer Ahmed (34) on Saturday evening from the Sonauli border post.


The SSB is tasked to guard the 1,751 km long open border.
“Ahmed was residing in Pakistan since September, 2003. He was involved in many violent attacks against civilians and security forces including an attack on a STF camp. He was sent to India by his handler for a specific mission,” an SSB spokesperson said here. “Ahmed, a resident of Banihal in Ramban district of Jammu and Kashmir, was trying to sneak into India from Nepal in guise of a Kashmiri shawl and carpet vendor.


“When he was asked for his identity proof by the SSB personnel at Sonauli, he was unable to produce any supporting documents,” the spokesperson said.


The paramilitary, based on initial interrogation of the terrorist, said Ahmed landed in Kathmandu on May 10 from Faisalabad in Pakistan via Sharjah.
