An LeT militant, who was arrested along with others for their alleged involvement in the Baramulla terror attack, praised the Indian Army and also urged militants to leave the path of violence. The video of him praising the Army has gone viral.

In the video, the arrested terrorist says his name is Aijaz Ahmad Gojri. He said the Indian Army could have killed him but saved his life, instead.

“We fired at Army personnel, but they did not fire on us. I hid myself in bushes where I was arrested, where Army could have killed me but they saved my life,” Gojri is purported to have said in the video.

He named his friends as he requested them to return home leaving the wrong path behind.

“I request my other friends–Suhaib Akhoon, Mohsin Mushtaq Bhat and Nasir Amin Drazi–who are on the wrong path and have left their families, their good life and living in forests, to return home. I request Nasir to come back as his mother is very ill,” the militant said in the 2-minute video, which was shot while he was in Army custody.

“Pakistan is misleading the youth. We were misled by our leaders in Pakistan about the Indian Army, which is not true. You should come and meet the Army officers. This is a conspiracy wherein they (Pakistanis) are playing with our lives,” he said.

A Lashker-e-Taiba terror module was busted in north Kashmir yesterday with the arrest of 10 people, including four militants who were allegedly responsible for gunning down three boys at Baramulla on April 30.

“We have ample evidence to suggest the hand of outlawed Lasher-e-Taiba group in instigating violence and killing innocent people in north Kashmir,” Inspector General of Police (Kashmir range) Swayam Prakash Pani had told reporters on Wednesday.

A police spokesman said two of the four militants held were involved in the killing of Haseeb Nabi Khan, Irfan Ahmad Sheikh and Mohammad Asgar Sheikh all residents of Baramulla, on April 30.
