JeM chief Masood Azhar in Pakistan, admits Pakistan foreign minister

New Delhi: Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has admitted that Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar is in the country and is unwell.

“He (Masood Azhar) is in Pakistan. According to my information, he is very unwell. He’s unwell to the extent that he cannot leave his house because he is really unwell. So, that’s the information I have,” Qureshi told CNN in an interview.

However, the Foreign Minister said the Pakistan government can act against him only upon solid and inalienable evidence.

Qureshi also added that the release of captured IAF pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman is a peace gesture and must be seen as Pakistan’s willingness to de-escalate the tensions.

India has handed over a dossier to Pakistan, on Wednesday, with specific details of the JeM complicity in Pulwama terror attack and the presence of JeM terror camps and its leadership in Pakistan.

Masood Azhar is the chief of JeM that claimed responsibility for the Pulwama attack in which over 40 CRPF personnel became martyred.

JeM has been active in Pakistan for the last two decades with its headquarters in Bahawalpur. JeM, which is prescribed by the UN, has been responsible for a series of terrorist attacks including on the Indian Parliament in 2001 December and the Pathankot airbase in 2016 January.

India has provided Information regarding the location of training camps in Pakistan and Pak occupied Jammu and Kashmir from time to time to Pakistan.
