Pulwama Terror Attack Case

Pulwama attack of February 2019, in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed has been one the most horrifying experiences of our country. It took place when a CRPF convoy, consisting of around 2,500 personnel, was attacked by a suicide bomber who rammed a car laden with explosives into one of the buses on the Jammu-Srinagar highway.

On Thursday (September 3, 2020), one of the accused in the Pulwama attack namely Waiz-ul-Islam filed an application in the special National Investigation Agency (NIA) Court in Jammu pleading to grant him bail for the purpose to appear for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) exams.

The bail application was to be heard on 3rd September but was not heard because the court was closed for COVID-19 testing. 

The seventh accused of the Pulwama attack named Bilal Ahmed Kuchey was arrested as he was considered a terror associate by the agency in July. 

Bilal Ahmed Kuchey was a resident of Hajibal, Kakapora, Jammu, and Kashmir and used to operate a sawmill there. According to the agency the main culprits of the case used to stay at his place, and he used to make them meet some more over ground workers (OGWs) who provided safe houses during their stay and planning of the attack.

Last month, a charge sheet was filed by NIA against Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar Alvi and 18 others in a special NIA court in Jammu. Some Pakistani nationals were named in the charge sheet in connection with the attack including Masood Azhar Alvi, Rouf Asgar Alvi, Ammar Alvi, Mohd Ismail, Muhammad Umar Farooq, Mohd Kamran Ali, and Qari Yasir.

The case is listed for hearing on 15th September, 2020.
