Lucknow, Nov 25 (PTI) The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday filed a supplementary charge sheet against an overground worker (OGW) of the Hizbul Mujahideen terror outfit in a case related to a criminal conspiracy to carry out attacks in different parts of the country, including Uttar Pradesh, an official said.


The supplementary charge sheet against Danish Naseer, a resident of Sthe ounder-Dachhan area of Jammu and Kashmir's Kishtwar district, was filed in a special court here under section 120B of the Indian Penal Code and sections 17, 18 and 38 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, a spokesperson of the agency said.

The agency said the case was initially registered on September 12, 2018 at the Anti Terrorist Squad Police Station in Lucknow and re-registered by the NIA 12 days later for a thorough investigation.
