JAMMU:National Investigation Agency (NIA), probing the Delhi High Court blast, on Wednesday claimed to have made some headway in the investigation into the case as it recovered three mobile phones and some documents related to exchange of money as indications have surfaced about the involvement of Jaish-e-Mohammed in the terror attack.

An NIA team flew in to Jammu in a special BSF plane along with Wasim Ahmed Malik, a medical student who was arrested from Bangladesh, and carried out a search operation at his Jammu residence and recovered his mobile phones from there, sources privy to the probe said here.

Later, they flew to Kishtwar in a helicopter and recovered another mobile phone besides some more documents from the residence of Malik, who along with his brother Junaid Akram Malik are emerging as prime suspects in the case, the sources said.

Wasim is alleged to have named the two people who purportedly planted the bomb outside the High Court on September seven that left 15 people dead and over 80 injured.

The NIA team headed by an Additional Superintendent of Police has been camping in the city and have brought in Close Circuit Television (CCTV) footage of Jammu and Kashmir Bank’s ATM from where he had withdrawn the cash a day before and after the blast, the sources said.

There were big financial transactions in his account. (PTI)
