NEW DELHI: The heightened security cordon at LoC and border areas has deterred the transfer of money from Pakistan to terror modules at Jammu & Kashmir. However, in an escape route, the money is now being transferred via handlers of ISI modules based in Nepal. They are utilizing their contacts in bordering areas of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh for transferring money. The money procured through transfer from Nepal is used for terror funding, buying arms, payment to informers, and terror cadre in Kashmir.
Some businessmen based in Nepal are in touch with traders in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, who after receiving the cash transfer the amount to their local contacts. They in turn take this money to Jammu & Kashmir in lieu of petty commission. In this way, terror modules are hoodwinking investigating agencies as the mode of payment leaves no scope for the electronic trail.
Last month, Bihar ATS had nabbed a youth from Saran in Bihar for allegedly supplying cash and arms to a Kashmiri, with whom he got in touch during his stay in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh. His arrest came close on the heels of a Kashmiri youth landing in a police net for supplying guns to a terrorist. During interrogation, he spilled the beans about ISI modules operating from Nepal and the transfer of money via local youths of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.
