It said that the case pertains to hatching of conspiracy both on physical as well as cyberspace for undertaking violent militant acts in J&K and other parts of the country, by cadres of proscribed militant organisations like Laskhar-e-Toiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM), Al-Badr and their affiliates such as the Resistance Front (TRF), People Anti-Fascist Forces (PAFF) etc.

“Investigation has unearthed a deep rooted conspiracy of Pakistan based militant organisations joining hands in form of a united group and shifting of their modus operandi by floating pseudo offshoot outfits portrayed as indigenous resistance groups, in whose name militant acts are being committed with an intention to claim deniability at the international level. “After the abrogation of article 370, this shift was discernible in claims of militant acts done in J&K.

Many affiliate/offshoots outfits such as The Resistance Front (TRF), People Against Fascist Forces (PAFF), United Liberation Front J&K ULF J&K, Muslim Janbaaz Force (MJF), Kashmir Janbaaz Force (KJF), Kashmir Tigers, Kashmir Fight, Mujahideen Gazwat-ul-Hind, Kashmir Gaznavi Force etc had suddenly mushroomed, laying claims to various militant acts,” the statement said, adding that the investigation established that all these pseudo-outfits are in fact offshoots/rechristened versions of militant organisations based in Pakistan and have been floated under a deep-rooted conspiracy to portray militancy in J&K as home-grown insurgency. “A well-organized propaganda machinery operating on cyberspace through various websites, blogs, Social media handles, closed channels on encrypted communication platforms etc. wherein concocted and skewed narrative is presented to impressionable and Pak based nodes have been used to radicalize youth. Investigation has revealed that all this media propaganda of different militant outfits was epicentre around common nodes operating from Pakistan,” the statement said, adding that a key element of aforementioned conspiracy was inducting new cadres in form of ‘Hybrid militants’ belonging to various walks of life, who could use their cover to remain rooted in the society and simultaneously carry out instructions of their militant handlers.

“While acting as an OGW, they were also found indulging in militant actions such as grenade lobbing, undertaking lone attacks on vulnerable targets, arson etc. The investigation has also revealed a clear shift in the strategy of militant organization towards targeted killings of minorities, civilians, migrants, government officials and unguarded security personnel,” the statement said, adding that further investigation in the case continues—(KNO)
