Pakisthan says ‘He’ is not its national !
‘Father’ says LeT wanted his son dead not caught alive

New Delhi, / Islamabad: When Pakisthan officially says that Usman, the terrorist  who caught alive in Udhampur on Wednesday 5th August 2015 is not its national, while  ‘father’ of arrested youth says that LeT wanted his son dead and not caught alive.

According to report from Islamabad on Thursday 6th August 2015,
Pakistan rejected India's assertion that a LeT terrorist captured alive after a terror attack in Udhampur  was of Pakistani-origin and asked India to refrain from making "accusations".

"We have also seen media reports and I will not offer any comment on that issue.

We expect the Indian authorities to share information with us on the claims that are being made in the media," Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesperson Syed Qazi Khalilullah said on the arrest of the terrorist in India.

"We have said many a times that making immediate accusations on Pakistan is not correct. These things should be based on facts. We expect that whenever Pakistan is being accused of something, it will be accompanied with correct evidence," he said.

Khalilullah said that the Indian claim was baseless. "We have repeatedly asked India to refrain from accusations."

However according to report from New Delhi,  A Pakistan-based man who identified himself as the "unfortunate father" of the Pakistani terrorist nabbed in Udhampur has said that the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) wanted his son dead, not caught alive.

He said that his own life is also in danger. Speaking to the ‘Hindustan Times’ daily over phone, the "father", who identified himself as Mohammad Yakub said: "I'll be killed. The Lashkar is after us and the fauj is after us.."

The Hindustan Times contacted him on a phone number disclosed to interrogators by the arrested gunman Usman alias Mohammad Naved, who is said to hail from Faisalabad city of Pakistan's Punjab province. "You are calling from India. We'll be killed. I am the unfortunate father," Yakub told the daily.

"The Lashkar is after us. They probably wanted him dead and not caught alive. Please spare him," Yakub said, referring to the LeT. Usman, who was nabbed in Jammu and Kashmir's Udhampur district on Wednesday, is being questioned in Jammu to find out more about his plans to strike terror in the country.

 According to Jammu and Kashmir Police, he has admitted he is Pakistani and hails from Faisalabad. Usman along with a compatriot, had attacked a Border Security Force convoy on the highway near Samruli, about 10 km from Udhampur town, killing two troopers. The other terrorist was killed in the firing, but Usman was nabbed alive.

Meanwhile the interrogation of  Usman was handed over to NIA today by Union Government.
