Escaped LeT militant was trained in PoK

January 18, 2006 19:16 IST

Lashkar-e-Tayiba militant Ali Ahmed, who escaped from the Jammu and Tawai Express early on Wednesday at Veerapatti station near Varanasi while being taken to Jammu and Kashmir from a jail at Balurghat in West Bengal, was arrested at Hili in South Dinajpur district while trying to enter India about two months back, police said.

Trained in a militant camp in the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, Ahmed had first entered India in 2001 from Pakistan through the border with Punjab and returned to the PoK after being involved in militant activities.

The Inspector General (law and order), Raj Kanojia, said on January 16 he was handed over to the Jammu and Kashmir Police and a team of the state police came to Balurghat to take him to the state for trial.
