Terror plot foiled in Jammu, one arrested

Jammu, Dec 29 (TIWN) The Jammu and Kashmir Police have arrested one person linked to the proscribed terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), who had been tasked by the handlers from across the border to carry out grenade blasts on the National Highway (NHW) bypass road, police said on Monday.

Two foreign terrorists of the outfit were slain in an encounter in Poonch’s Dogrian on December 20.
“Acting on intelligence inputs, a joint team of Army’s 49RR, J&K Police’s special operations group and Poonch Police set up a checkpoint at Basooni late Saturday and intercepted a vehicle driven by Mustafa Khan, a terror suspect, who was questioned for his suspicious movement. Mustafa confessed to his involvement in terror-related activities, based on which, two of his associates — Mohammad Yaseen and Rayees Ahmed, both residents of Dabbi, Balakote — were arrested,” Poonch SSP Ramesh Angral said.
After sustained questioning of the trio, security forces got vital clues and raided Mustafa’s residence in Mendhar’s Galutha Harni area from where six grenades and other incriminating evidence, including posters of J&K Ghaznavi Force, were recovered.
