The National Investigative Agency (NIA) on Monday issued a red corner notice against Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) Chief Maulana Masood Azhar and three others for conspiring to carry out terror strike on the strategic Indian Air Force base in Pathankot.

According to NIA sources, JeM suspects Kashif Jan and Shahid Latif were involved in the Pathankot attack and played an instrumental role as trainers in the terror outfit.

Masood Azhar, his brother Abdul Rauf, Jan and Latif are being touted as the main culprits into the deadly attack on Indian Air Force Base.

An Interpol red corner notice is pending against Azhar for being involved in the conspiracy behind attacks on Parliament and J&K Assembly.

The decision came after the NIA presented proof before the court, including details about terrorists and telephonic conversations between terrorists and their JeM handlers. An Interpol red corner notice is also pending against Rauf in relation with IC-814 1999 hijacking case.

The strategic base was attacked by terrorists of banned JeM during the intervening night of January one and two in which seven security personnel were killed. Four bodies of terrorists were recovered from the encounter site which lasted for nearly 80 hours.

The special court issued the arrest warrant after weighing the evidence presented by NIA before it which included telephonic conversation between the terrorists and the Jaish handlers like Jaan and Latif.

Importantly, an Interpol Red Corner Notice is already pending against Azhar in connection to Indian Parliament and Jammu Kashmir Assembly attack in the year 2001. Similarly, Interpol has also issued a Red Corner Notice against Rauf for conspiring the 1999 Indian Airlines flight IC-814 hijacking.
