One can certainly not forget the gruesome day of February 14, 2019. It was when one of the major terrorist attacks on the security forces in India took place. It took away the lives of many soldiers and left the rest severely injured. Though, India broke its silence by a counter-attack by the fight is still on. But this time not against the terrorist but the one supporting them i.e Pakistan. Pakistan is globally infamous for its support to different terrorist groups. Before knowing the major step took by India, let’s recap to 14th February 2019.
The Dark Day Of February 14, 2019 :
Around 3:30 am, a jadish terrorist jam-packed with 100 kg explosive rammed its vehicle into a bus. The bus was carrying 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) soldiers. All of the martyred. Soldiers who were behind them on a different bus got severely injured.
Jaish-e-Mohammed, a Pakistan based terror group, claimed the responsibility for the attack. This attack shook the entire nation. Everyone desired for a bigger and more fatal counterattack. On February 26, 2019, the Indian Air Force turned a major camp of Jaish into ashes near the LoC.
India’s Recent Checkmate On The Supporter Pakistan –
The incontrovertible trail of money that was transferred by Jaish masterminds to Umar Farooq’s bank has been tracked down. Umar Farooq is accused of the Pulwama attack. The money was transferred to the Khyber Agency and Peshawar to finance the attack. New Delhi will put forth the news in front of the multilateral body on September 14. This will be followed by the final decision of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) in October.
The evidence will strengthen India’s case. India is looking forward to banning Pakistan from FATF. This move will also highlight the understanding of Islamabad’s of its finance.
An Indian officer stated in a press briefing, “The fact that a Jaish terrorist was receiving funds in his bank accounts back in Pakistan, with which he bought the explosives…shows that Pakistan has failed to deliver on its promises of due diligence in its banking system”.
NIA’s investigation revealed that a total credit of 10.43 lakh was made in Umar’s account. Out of this 5 lakh was used for the Pulwama attack. It included modification of cars and buying explosives. Umar apparently also bout ammonium power from Amazon. Amazon helped NIA by providing the detail of the buyer. And the remaining amount was for another deadly attack in India. But the attack was aborted due to the Balakot airstrike.
