NEW DELHI  | AUG 25, 2020:

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) today filed a charge sheet in connection with the terror attack that took place on February 2019, in Jammu and Kashmir, in which it named 19 people for carrying out the attack at Pakistan's behest.

The 13,500 pages charge sheet was filed before a special NIA court in Jammu.

According to media reports, Jaish Chief, Maulana Masood Azhar, his brothers Abdul Rauf Asghar and Ammar Alvi, and nephew Umar Farooq are among those named in the charge sheet by the agency.

The charge sheet also named people who were arrested from Pulwama for providing shelter and shooting the last video of Adil Dar, the suicide bomber who used around 200 kgs of explosives in the vehicle that rammed into the CRPF convoy near Lethpora in South Kashmir.

The "blind case" was solved by the NIA after piecing together the electronic evidence and statements of terrorists arrested in different cases.

As many as seven people have been arrested so far by the NIA in this case.
