Tariq Ahmad Dar

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrested 2005 Delhi serial blasts mastermind Tariq Ahmad Dar for providing financial help to Lashkar-e-Taiba. He was allegedly involved in Pakistan-based terror commanders radicalizing local youth to join terror ranks and also give them arms and ammunition training, officials said. 

Tariq Ahmad was earlier sentenced to 10 years imprisonment by Delhi’s Patiala House Court for funding the 2005 blasts that took place in Delhi’s Paharganj, Govindpuri, and Sarojini Nagar, area killing almost 60 people and over a hundred.

Delhi Police had accused Dar of serving as the spokesperson, finance manager, and conspirator of Lashkar-e-Taiba. Police said he was the mastermind of the blasts and the man who had called up the office of Kashmir News Agency to deny that LeT had any role in the attack.

As per an official statement by NIA, Agency conducted raids in six districts of Kashmir including Srinagar, Pulwama, Shopian, Budgam, Kulgam and Baramulla; 31 locations were raided by NIA, followed by subsequent raids at some places, in the past 72 hours.

The NIA said the preliminary investigation has revealed that the arrested accused people are terror associates or Over Ground Workers (OGWs) of various proscribed terrorist organizations and have been providing logistical and material support to terrorists and facilitating them in their nefarious designs.
