NEW DELHI: NIA on Thursday took custody of alleged Pakistani LeT militant Bahadur Ali alias Saifullah, who was nabbed from Yahama in Kupwara district on Monday, on a five-day remand after he was flown here from Handwara in Jammu and Kashmir.

Official sources said Saifullah had confessed that he was from Lahore, he had entered India from Leepa Valley in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir two months ago and that he was operating in Jammu and Kashmir. The Army said it had recovered three AK-47 rifles, two pistols, a radio set and `23,000 from him.

A Class IV dropout, Saifullah said he had been hiding in the forests of Handwara. “He was trained at a Lashkar camp in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, including in map reading and operating GPS devices,” said an NIA officer adding that Saifullah had infiltrated into India with two others to take advantage of the unrest in Kashmir.
