The terrorist, caught on Tuesday during a gunfight in Kupwara district, had told police that he belongs to Lahore and his name is Bahadur Ali.

He said he crossed over to the Kashmir Valley two months back and had been operating under the nom de guerre Saifullah.

He also reportedly said that after crossing into India from Lepa Valley in Pakistani Kashmir, he had been receiving groups of terrorists from Pakistan.

"Some crucial disclosures made by the terrorist have not been made public because of their operational importance," a police source told reporters. The Pakistani terrorist has been flown to Delhi after being taken on transit remand by the National Investigation Agency (NIA), police sources said.
