As Pakistan denies any involvement of terror outfits on its soil in the Sunjwan Camp attack, Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief Maulana Masood Azhar boasted about his role in scripting the attack on the army camp in Jammy. In an audio clip, the JeM chief does not only take responsibility for the attack, but claims to have taught a lesson to Indian agencies, reported the Times of India.
TOI has said that the audio clip was obtained by intelligence agencies of the central and western army commands.
“India wale pareshan hai ki mujahideen Kashmir se Jammu shahr tak kaise pahunch gaye. Sanjuwan border par nahi balki Jammu main hai. (Indian agencies are shocked how our mujahideen managed to reach Jammu from Kashmir. Sanjuwan is not on the border but inside the heart of Jammu city),” The Times of India quoted Azhar as saying in the clip. The audio clip also captures how Azhar is working with other terror outfits to launch simultaneous attacks.
Over the years, Azhar has been giving threats of separating Kashmir from Jammu.
Times of India also said Azhar mocked Indian forces for not being able to ascertain the number of terrorists in the army camp.
This is the first time both Lashkar-e-Taiba and the JeM launched twin terror attacks in Jammu and Srinagar.

(The Quint, in association with BitGiving, has launched a crowdfunding campaign for an 8-month-old who was raped in Delhi on 28 January 2018. The baby girl, who we will refer to as 'Chhutki', was allegedly raped by her 28-year-old cousin when her parents were away. She has been discharged from AIIMS hospital after undergoing three surgeries, but needs more medical treatment in order to heal completely. Her parents hail from a low-income group and have stopped going to work so that they can take care of the baby. You can help cover Chhutki's medical expenses and secure her future. Every little bit counts. Click here to donate.)
