Dr Rehman admitted that numerous Health Department's officials had overstayed on their postings in Srinagar Central Jail for 3 to 10 years. Police sources told Mirror that the Pakistani commander had stayed in the house of Tika Khan, and he had escaped before the house was raided in Pulwama village. He said it was being thoroughly investigated how one of the key actors of the escape drama, Tika Khan of Pulwama, and his associates had been frequently visited Srinagar Central Jail and how the information about Abu Hanzalla's movement to the hospital had been leaked to the terrorists. "We have identified the place but we are not revealing it so as not to hamper the investigation", he said. However, Naveed remained at large. They added that six other men, who are mostly ground workers, have also been detained for questioning. "Appreciate officers" efforts who cracked case in limited time.

Addressing a press conference here, he said a Special Investigative Team (SIT) of police was formed right after the incident, leading to the arrest of "three militants and an OGW".

The developments unfolded on a day the Mehbooba Mufti government suspended the superintendent of Srinagar's Central Jail where the conspiracy was apparently hatched. In the unrest that lasted for several months, at least 80 civilians were killed and thousands injured in clashes between protestors and security forces. It was Hilal who opened fire at the cops and killed them before Jatt was whisked away. "I believe a magisterial probe is also being ordered to ascertain all that led to the attack and the subsequent escape", Vaid said.


In the picture, Naveed can be seen holding an AK-47 rifle along with two top commanders. The officials said that the police were able to wipe out on the four accused through the help of CCTV camera footage and conversations on social media.

Sources said the incident happened at around 11:30 am following which the police sounded a red alert in entire Kashmir Valley, particularly in Srinagar. Police officials said the militants were possibly waiting inside the hospital when the inmates were being brought for the medical check-up.
