SRINAGAR: National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday filed a supplementary charge sheet against two accused in a case pertaining to the interception of Nadeem-Ul-Haq with IED in Jammu and Kashmir.

A spokesman in a statement said that NIA filed a supplementary charge sheet against two accused persons Fayaz Ahmed Khan, son of Mohammad Afzal Khan of Village Panzat, Wampoora, PS Tehsil Qazigund, Anantnag and Tawseef Ahmed Wani, son of Late Muhammad Maqbool Wani of Village Bangdara, Reshipora, Tehsil Kreeri, Distt.

The case was initially registered as FIR No. 234/ 2021 at PS Bahu Fort, Jammu and taken over by NIA on 19.07.2021, the statement said.

It added that the case pertains to the recovery of an IED from accused Nadeem Ul Haq from Bhatindi, Jammu, who on the behest of his Pakistan based handlers of TRF, a frontal organization of LeT, had attempted to execute an IED explosion in a public place in Jammu area.
