Though an official announcement is still be made, sources in the state police set-up said that Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Naveed Jatt along with two local terrorists murdered senior journalist Shujaat Bukhari.

Naveed Jatt alais Abu Hanzala, is a Pakistani national who escaped from police custody from a Srinagar hospital on February 6 this year. “The other two terrorists involved in this terror murder are locals from south Kashmir areas,” sources in the police said.

It may be recalled that Bukhari, who was the Editor-in-Chief of English daily “Rising Kashmir”, was shot dead by motorcycle borne terrorists when he came out of his office in Press Enclave and was boarding his car.

Police earlier arrested a local who had escaped with a pistol belonging to one of Bukhari’s guards and two mobile phones belonging to the journalist.

“He appears to be a drug addict. He is still in our custody but he does not appear to be part of the terror conspiracy to assassinate Bukhari,” source said.

Police have also identified a blogger who uploaded malicious posts against Bukhari.

“He is a Kashmiri terrorist presently in Pakistan from where he is operating the blog,” source added.
