NEW DELHI: Abu Saad, Anas, Saria and Omesh are among the 15 LeT trainers identified by India to highlight the terror nurseries operating in Pakistan’s backyard. The training in terror field craft, including map reading, GPS plotting, compass reading, radio communications and handling of arms and explosives, is being run with the active support of Pakistan ISI. A source said that India is likely to hand over the evidence during the meeting of BSF and Pakistani Rangers scheduled to be held here from September 9.

Abu Hammad (28), Saifur Rehman, Imran, Abdullah Sajid, Abu Khuzama and Qital are imparting training to terror recruits in a camp near Shawai Nallha in Muzaffarabad. The trainers have designed the entire duration in two parts-- physical endurance and weapon handling. Each trainee is given 100 rounds fire from AK-47 Assault rifle, five rounds from an LMG and 10 rounds from a Pistol.

According to the document prepared on the basis of interrogation of LeT terrorist Naved, at a time 40 recruits underwent weapons training in Muzaffarabad camp. In the aftermath of 26/11 Mumbai attacks, some of these camps were destroyed by the LeT but became operational in late 2009. Naved has given the names of seven other terror recruits trained for anti-India operation. The list includes Abdulla (21), Tauqeer (20), Aasim (21), Kasif, Abid and Sadaqat. Sources said it is not yet known whether these trained terrorists have been able to infiltrate into Indian territory, however, the names have been shared with security and intelligence agency for immediate action.

“The names appear to be alias given by the handlers to camouflage the real identity and nationality. But, it is clear that the LeT indoctrination camp in Ghazi Habibullah is up and running.

Naved has confessed that he was shown videos of alleged atrocities being committed on Muslims in various parts of the world, including Palestine and Kashmir,” the sources added.

Naved has also named five terrorists, who were trained in May, 2015 for anti-India operation. He said the first-- Mohammed Bhai (38)-- was a resident of KhyberPakhtunkhwa, Usman, a resident of Sialkot, Utebah (12), resident of Lahore, Abu Ali (20), resident of Kasur, Punjab Pakistan and Tauquir (20) from Kasur.

All these terrorists were trained by Ziman and Abu Uzama, a resident of Lahore. During the training, Grid References (GR) on the maps were shown and trainees were repeatedly asked to locate them on maps.

India is likely to raise infiltration and repeated ceasefire violation issue with Pakistan along with the evidences highlighting existence of terror training camps and launch pads across the border.
