Manzoor Ahmad Itoo had played an important role in mobilizing people in support of the terrorists and also motivating youth to join terrorist ranks, which posed a serious threat to the security of the Indian State.

Syed Saleem Andrabi has been found involved in drug trafficking. Further, Mohammad Aurif Sheikh, has been found involved in planting IEDs, on the instructions of terrorists operating from Pakistan, thus causing loss of human lives and damage to public properties.
