Srinagar : A hunt has been launched for a businessman who is alleged to have paid money to Mohammed Naved Yakub, a Pakistani militant who was caught alive last week after the Udhampur terror strike in which two BSF personnel were killed.

Facing persistent questioning by a host of interrogators, Naved has now told them he has shared all information available with him and that there was nothing more. “Mere kol jitna bhi tha, mein dus ditta. Haur mere kol kuch na hai, mainu tang na karo (I have shared whatever I knew. I don’t know anything beyond this. Please stop asking me again and again),” Naved reportedly told his interrogators on Monday,  when he was being questioned again about the route he took for infiltration. The language spoken by him is generally used in Faisalabad and Sialkot areas of Pakistan, his interrogators said.

Naved was taken to Jammu and produced before a special NIA court for further remand. Meanwhile, based on information provided by him, police and central security agencies have launched a manhunt for a businessman who is alleged to have paid him and Mohammed Noman alias Momin Rs five lakh for sharing it with other Lashkar-e-Taiba cadre.
