Guwahati News Desk: A young Pakistani terrorist, who was captured by the Indian Army has asked his handlers in the neighbouring country to take him back to his mother.
As per the sources, a teenage terrorist from Pakistan, named Ali Babar Patra, was nabbed by the Army during an encounter in the Uri sector on September 26, when he asked for his life to be spared.
Meanwhile, in a video message released by the Indian Army in Srinagar on Wednesday, the teenage terrorist said, “I appeal to the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) area commander, the ISI and the Pakistan Army to take me back to my mother just like they sent me here (India).”
Adding that the Pakistan Army, the ISI and the LeT were spreading lies about the situation in Kashmir, Patra said in the video message, “We were told that the Indian Army is carrying out a bloodbath, but everything is peaceful here. I want to tell my mother that the Indian Army has taken good care of me.”
He went ahead to assure that the behaviour of the officers and jawans of the Indian Army with the locals who visit the camp, where he was lodged, was extremely good.
Patra said, “I can hear the azaan on the loudspeakers five times a day. The behaviour of the Indian Army is completely opposite to that of the Pakistan Army. This makes me feel that there is peace in Kashmir.”
He further added, “On the contrary, they take advantage of our helplessness in Pakistani Kashmir to send us here.”
Moreover, giving details of his initiation into terror ranks, Patra informed the Indian Army that he lost his father seven years ago and had to drop out of school due to financial constraints. He added, “I took a job in a garment factory in Sialkot where I met Anas who used to recruit people for the LeT. Due to my situation, I went with him. He paid me Rs. 20,000 and promised to pay another Rs. 30,000 later on.”
Furthermore, the video message consisted of Patra sharing the details of the weapons training he underwent with the Pakistan Army and the ISI at Camp Khyber Delihabibullah.
