In the backdrop of recent threats to Kashmir-based journalists, an intelligence report noted that LeT militant Mukthar Baba, who now operates from Turkey, is the mastermind behind putting out a hit list accusing scribes from the Union Territory of being informers for security forces. According to police, a First Information Report, or FIR, under the anti-militant law Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) has been registered and investigations have been launched after the emergence of the “hit-list”.
