Jammu and Kashmir Government Seeks Transfer of LeT Terrorist From Jammu Jail to Tihar saying he 'Indoctrinates' Inmates

Pakistani Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Zahid Farooq was trying to cross border security fence on May 19, 2016.  On 15th February 2019, the Jammu and Kashmir Government presented a plea in the Supreme Court to transfer the arrested terrorist from Jammu jail to Tihar in Delhi as he is constantly "indoctrinating" Indian inmates.

The Jammu and Kashmir Government contended that

1.    transporting the militant to court and back to prison poses a threat to escorting policemen and common public.

2.    There are chances of other similarly situated individuals having local support and they may be receiving information, resources as well as other help to carry out terrorist related activities

3.    The effect of such radicalization is that the brainwashed local youth who are inmates with these prisoners, are spreading the menace of terrorism and creating sympathizers by influencing, mobilizing against the state

The petition read as:

“The petitioner State has received confidential intelligence inputs which show that Farooq poses a threat to national security in as much as his involvement in planning and designing terror attacks against the citizens/residents in India cannot be ruled out.

To execute such nefarious schemes, it is understood that the prisoner and other similarly situated individuals have been mobilizing support within the jail premises by influencing the minds and psyche of other inmates.

Foreign prisoners like the private respondent are radicalising and brainwashing local Kashmiri youth in prison. There is a concentration of prisoners with similar backgrounds and linkages to terrorist organizations in local prisons in the State of J&K.
