NEW DELHI: Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Naved Yakub, who was caught during Udhampur attack, had performed security duty at a congregation of Jamat-ud-Dawa, headed by Mumbai terror attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed, at Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore in December last year.

According to a dossier prepared to be given to Pakistan during the now-cancelled NSA level talks, Naved had undergone arms training at a Lashkar-e-Taiba camp at a jungle near Muzaffarabad in Pakistan occupied Kashmir where a total of 40 trainees were lodged.

"Towards the end of this training, in early December 2014, Jamat-ud-Dawa held an 'ijtema' (congregation) at Minar-e-Pakistan, Lahore. All the trainees, including Naved were transported from Muzaffarabad to Lahore to perform security duties at the 'ijtema' venue. Naved was deployed close to the entrance of a pedestrian under-pass near Minar-e-Pakistan," the dossier says.

LeT founder Hafiz Saeed, who was the mastermind of 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, is chief of Jamat-ud Dawa. The dossier also named 17 Pakistanis who trained Naved in three different terror training courses in Pakistan since 2011 and 12 Pakistani terrorists who were trained along with him.

A mobile number of Zong service provider used by Naved in Pakistan is mentioned in the dossier. Government is planning to seek US help to procure call detail records of this number to give further proof that Naved is a Pakistani national.

Dismissing Pakistan's claim that Naved does not figure in its national database, India's dossier says an identity card was issued to Naved by the National Database and Registration Authority of Pakistan in 2014. "Naved claims to have lost the card," the Indian dossier says, giving details of his family and even mentioning names of his three neighbours at Rafiq Colony in Faisalabad. 

Besides names and phone numbers of his parents and three siblings, the dossier also names three of Naved's uncles with their addresses and names of all his 27 cousins in Pakistan as well as names of his four close friends — Tanveer, Afridi, Qasim and Shahad.

Indian agencies also accessed the Facebook account of Naved's cousin Taheer to get photographs of some of his family members. These details will now be shared with Pakistan through a Letter Rogatory, asking for further investigation on Pakistan soil.

The dossier also carried pictures of a red motorcycle used by Naved's elder brother Mohammad Nadeem, of a signage situated close to his maternal uncle Mohammad Ali's house in Kotha Shah Bhalol in Pakistan. Security agencies are said have procured these photographs through its sources and claim they have been identified by Naved.

Twenty-four pages of the 39-page dossier are devoted to these photographs and Google maps locations of Naved's residence, his relatives houses and the three terror camps in Pakistan till May 2015. Naved has identified the locations. According to the dossier, Naved was trained in using grid references on maps, GPS plotting , night training and jungle marches. A total of 17 Pakistanis involved in training the trainee militants were 'professional trainers' in field craft and indoctrination through sermons on jihad and alleged atrocities in Palestine and Kashmir.

The dossier also mentioned that Naved was a habitual gambler, lost 30,000 Pakistani rupees once and was fond of cricket and watched matches during the 2015 World Cup. He was once taken to a Ghulam Mohammadabad police station in 2014 for gambling and but no charges were filed by police official Baksh Ali.
