An audio tape has revealed that days before he was killed, Kashmiri militant leader Burhan Wani had spoken to Lashkar-e-Toiba chief Hafiz Saeed.
CNN-News18 reported that it had accessed an audiotape of the conversation between the two terrorists which had been intercepted by Indian intelligence agencies. Wani, from his jungle hideout, had called Saeed in Pakistan. However, it is also said that the channel could not independently verify the authenticity of the audio tape. But as reported by news18 security agency sources said that Wani reaching out to Lashkar pointed towards a concerted effort by Kashmiri militant organisations to bury their differences and pose a united threat to India, prompted by their Pakistani handlers.
In the audio tape, Saeed is heard praising Wani for his great work and sacrifices. “You people are living in very difficult conditions. But you don’t have to worry. Whatever you need just tell us, we are ready for every help. Will be ready for anything. You just have to tell us,” Saeed is heard telling Wani in the tape.
Wani tells Saeed that “the enemy is almost defeated and we have to maintain this.”
“We have to go all out on attacks and shouldn’t lose this opportunity. For this, we need ammunition and support from the back. We should work together for this (Hizbul & Lashkar),” Wani is heard as saying.
