The NIA on Friday released photographs of the three HM terror operatives who are wanted in the case. They have been identified as Junaid Akram Malik alias Juni (19), Shakir Hussain
Sheikh alias Chota Hafiz alias Adil (26) and Amir Ali Kamal alias Akram (25) and are known to be operating in areas between Dachhan, Marwah, Chichha and Palmar in Jammu and Kashmir. The three originally belong to Kishtwar.
The NIA has announced a reward of R10 lakh for anyone who provides information leading to their arrests. The NIA suspects that the HM module of these three operatives provided the IED that was planted at the high court.
Junaid is brother of accused Wasim Akram Malik, who is in the custody of NIA at present.
