NIA uses drones while searching Srinagar Central Jail

Srinagar central jail — A paradise for terrorists

According to the reports, 20 teams of NIA entered the jail along with NSG commandos and drones and conducted the searches at both the barracks and the open ground.

The entire search operation on Monday was being monitored by the central investigation agency through the images captured by the drones.

The National Investigation Agency in collaboration with the Jammu and Kashmir Police, Central Reserve Police Force and National Security Guard conducted a search at the Srinagar Central Jail.

The agency is also probing the escape of dreaded Lashker-e-Taiba terrorist Mohammed Naveed Jhatt on February 6 from a busy hospital in Srinagar.

The NIA officer also told NewsNation.in that the raids in jail campus were carried out after two youths arrested recently from Kupwara told investigative agencies that several fresh recruits including Al-Badr was carried out by Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists from behind the jail campus. During the search 25 mobile phones, SIM cards, 5 SD cards, 5 pen drives, 1 ipod and a large number of incriminating documents were seized.

The search operations that began early morning continued till late afternoon. "All the barracks and the open grounds were thoroughly searched with the help of well-trained teams and deep search metal detectors".

The spokesman said that the teams was accompanied by magistrates, witnesses and doctors.

The searches inside the jail also come at a time when jail security is being completely overhauled across Jammu and Kashmir to prevent militants from regrouping and indoctrinating young prisoners inside the prison premises. The MHA handed over the probe to the NIA asking it to investigate a possible conspiracy angle to Naveed's escape.

Two policemen were killed by the militants at Srinagar's S M H S Hospital when Hunzullah was freed. As many as 25 terrorists lodged in various jails in the Valley have already been shifted to jails outside the valley.
