Amid the heels of several mysterious assassinations of terrorist’s hostile to Bharat, a news has come to fore where one of the masterminds of the dastardly 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, Sajid Mir, has been allegedly poisoned in Pakistan’s Jail.
It should be noted that Sajid Mir was lodged in the Central Jail of Dera Ghazi Khan in Pakistan. As per the unsubstantiated reports, Mir was allegedly airlifted by the Pakistan Army to CMH Institute of Medical Sciences, Bahawalpur after being administered the poison.
He was shifted from the Lahore central jail, a few months ago where he had been holed up since last year. The anti-terrorism court in Pakistan last year sentenced him to a 15-year jail term for a terror-financing case.
According to reports, Pakistan Authorities are investigating a private cook, employed in the Central Jail Dera Ghazi Khan kitchen since October 2023, who has gone missing.
Who is Sajid Mir?
Sajid Mir is a senior member of Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and is wanted for his involvement in November 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai.
Mir reportedly recruited Dawood Gilani, alias David Coleman Headley, a Pakistani-American and FBI/DEA informant, and planned the Mumbai attacks with the assistance of Pakistani military officers. He was the mastermind behind the largest-ever overseas Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist attack, which killed nationals from numerous nations, including India and Western countries.
Believed to be in his mid-40s, Mir is one of Bharat’s most wanted terrorists and has a bounty of $5 million placed on his head by the US for his role in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.
In June, 2022, Mir was jailed for over 15 years in a terror-financing case by an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan. Pakistani authorities had in the past claimed Mir had died, but Western countries remained unconvinced and demanded proof of his death.
