The JeM chief has also asserted that in the past 17 years, he had never visited a hospital or even a doctor. This piece of information was stressed upon as Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had earlier said that ‘Masood Azhar is unwell‘. Qureshi had said, “He is in Pakistan, according to my information. He is unwell to the extent that he can’t leave his house and because he is really unwell.” Also Read - 26/11 Mumbai Attacks Main LeT Operator Earlier Claimed Dead, Now Arrested In Pakistan
Several media reports had previously stated that Azhar is suffering from renal failure and is under treatment and regular dialysis at the army hospital in Rawalpindi, the headquarters of the Pakistan Army. An officer posted in central security said, “We have been constantly monitoring the network of JeM since the air strikes of the Balakot terror camp. We are also looking at whether Pakistan has actually taken any action against Jaish.”
As per the latest report, it is safe to say that Pakistan is harbouring terrorists on its soil.
Azhar had taken responsibility for the Pulwama terror attack carried out against Indian security personnel on February 14 wherein an explosives-laded SUV rammed a CRPF bus and killed all 40 onboard. Kashmiri local Adil Ahmad Dar was identified as the suicide bomber. The explosive used to attack the bus was allegedly procured by Pakistan Army in Rawalpindi and handed over to JeM operatives.
Nearly 80 kg of RDX was used by the terrorists in the attack.
