Seven persons arrested in separate incidents in Jammu and Kashmir

Police arrested four persons including a Policeman and bank official for their involvement in providing logistic support and participation in the killing of Special Police Officer (SPO) Khurshid Ahmed in Imamsahab Shopian last month, reports Daily Excelsior on July 16. Police said that during the investigations of the case, it was revealed that the attack was carried out by Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM) outfit based in Shopian. “One Nazim Nazir Dar on the direction of other HM militants Saddam Padder and Irfan Abdullah Ganie, both residents of Heff carried the attack”, said Police. Police said that in the criminal conspiracy four OGWs (Over Ground Workers) provided logistic support to the militant group who were identified as Amir Mohidin - a bank official, Constable Towseef Ahmad of Chakoora, Basharat Yusuf Mir - working as private teacher and Iftikar Rather alias Jamshed. “After sustained questioning they were arrested and are being investigated for their roles”, Police said.

In the meantime, Security Forces (SFs) busted a Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM) militant module, luring youth to militancy, by arresting three persons in Baramulla District, adds Daily Excelsior on July 16. The arrested HM militants were identified as Ansarullah Tantaray, Abdul Rashid Bhat, and Mehrajuddin Kak. Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Baramulla, Imtiyaz Hussain said that Baramulla Police, assisted by other SFs, busted the module which has been active in the area to lure young boys to militancy. The SSP said the module was being spearheaded by HM ‘commander’ Parvez Wani alias Mub-ashir, a resident of Gagloora, Handwara in North Kashmir’s Kupwara District. The SSP said the module had plans to send many boys to Pakistan on valid visa to get them trained in militant camps of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). “One of the accused Abdul Rashid Bhat had visited Pakistan in the month of May this year and got training for undertaking terrorist activities in Khalid bin Waleed camp of HM located in PoK,” he said. The SSP said Bhat had got the visa from Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi on the recommendation of a separatist organization. “Arms, ammunition and Rs one lakh in Indian currency has been recovered from their possession,” he said. He said that module has not only been luring young boys to militancy, but providing all logistic support to other militants of the outfit as well. Imtiyaz said recently Baramulla Police saved around 10 boys meant to be inducted in militant ranks and handed them over to their parents.
