During interrogation they revealed that they are active members of Jaish-e-Mohammad and they along with Haiderr/o Pakistan (Distt. Commander Sopore of Jaish-e-Mohammad) and others had hatched a conspiracy of a big terrorist attack in Delhi on the directions of their mentors based in Pakistan.

Accused Shahid Gafoor r/o Pakistan further revealed that he had illegally crossed over to India, twice in the past, in 1998 and in 2002. On both the occasions, he was launched into India along with other Pak militants through forward Kota, Pakistan–Poonch, India sector.

On 07.08.2013, Hon’ble ASJ Court convicted accused Shahid Gafoor and acquitted Bashir Ahmed Ponnu @ Maulvi, Fayyaz Ahmed Lone and Abdul Majid Baba. On appeal against their acquittal the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi convicted all the three terrorists.
