NIA had re-registered the case and taken over the investigation.
Investigation has revealed that accused Hidayat-ullah Malik was the commander in chief of terrorist outfit Lashker-e-Mustafa and he along with his co-conspirators was planning terrorist acts in various parts India. The newly floated terror outfit, Lashker-e-Mustafa, is an off-shoot of proscribed terror organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed. The group Lashker-e-Mustafa was tactically formed so as to evade scrutiny forces and ease the international pressure on JeM after the attack on CRPF convoy at Lethpora, Pulwama on 14th February, 2019. The accused persons led by Hidayat-ullah Malik had also committed a daylight bank robbery amounting to sixty (60) Lakh Rupees at J&K Bank, Main Branchterrorist outfit district Shopian in November 2020. The looted money was used by terrorists of LeM for procuring weapons from Kashmir and Bihar. Hidayat-ullah Malik had also done reconnaissance of many security installations in Jammu and Delhi and was in constant touch with his handlers of JeM in Pakistan.
