Burhan Wani spoke to terrorist Hafiz Saeed, asked for help terming India as enemy

New Delhi: Days before he was killed, Kashmiri militant leader Burhan Wani spoke to LeT chief Hafiz Sayeed, sought his 'blessings' and offered to put up a united front of LeT and his own Hizbul Mujahideen in their 'jehad' against India.

The conversation between the two was intercepted by Indian intelligence agencies.

In the tape, which cannot be verifiedy, Wani is heard requesting Sayeed to extend more support to Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) militants in the Kashmir valley in terms of arms, ammunition and money.

"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," Sayeed is heard telling Wani in the tape.

Wani tells Sayeed 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 (Hizbul and Lashkar) for this," Wani is heard as saying.

Wani, 22, was killed by security forces in an encounter with security forces in July this year. (News24Bureau/IANS)
