In a major breakthrough against the terrorist infrastructure in North Kashmir, Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) Police along with security forces on Tuesday busted the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist module by arresting two active terrorists and their two important associates including a woman in Bandipora.
During a cordon and search operation undertaken at Gundbal Nursery by Bandipora Police, 13 Rashtriya Rifles (13RR) and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) apprehended two active terrorists affiliated with the proscribed terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
The terrorists have been identified as Musaib Mir alias Moya resident of Rakh Hajin and Arafat Farooq Wagey alias Dr Adil resident of Gulshnabad Hajin.
Incriminating materials, a huge cache of arms and ammunition, and materials for making (improvised explosive devices) IEDs were confiscated from their possession, preventing a major tragedy.
Incriminating materials, arms, and ammunition, including an AK-47 rifle, an AK-56 riffle, a 04 AK series magazine, live rounds, RDX powder, nails, and ball bearings, 9-volt batteries, detonators, an IED mechanism circuit, a remote control, loose wire, and iron pipes, among other things, were recovered from their possession.
The combined team also detained two key terror associates, Imran Majeed Mir alias Jaffar Bhaie, a resident of Wangipora Sumbal, and Suraya Rashid Wani alias Senty alias Tabish, a resident of Wahab Parray Mohalla Hajin, along with two hand grenades and incriminating materials.
The busted terrorist module was being handled by LeT terrorist commander alias Samama alias Babar from (Pakistan-occupied Kashmir) PoK, according to a preliminary inquiry. The module was instructed to carry out substantial attacks against civilians and security forces in order to instil fear in the general public. They were also charged with carrying out a powerful IED blast in any crowded public place in order to cause the most civilian casualties and therefore avert a major tragedy. The arrest of the Pak-controlled terrorist module was applauded by the local public.
The Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) of Kashmir commended the joint forces for busting the terror module and preventing a major tragedy. He also called it a huge success in demolishing North Kashmir’s terror infrastructure.
