Terror module busted in Jammu and Kashmir | India News

JAMMU: Police on Monday claimed to have busted a terror module with the arrest of two Kashmir-based Jaish-e-Mohammad operatives and seized a huge haul of arms and ammunition in J&K’s Ramban district.
“Initial investigation revealed that the duo — Umar Ahmed Malik and Suhail Ahmed Malik, both residents of Semthan — were part of a terror plot conspired by Kashmir-based terrorists and their Pakistan-based handler Aqib alias Alfa had clandestinely travelled from Kashmir to the international border at Vijaypur in Samba district and received a weapon consignment air-dropped by Pakistan,” IGP (Jammu Range) Mukesh Singh said. The recovery included two AK-74s, one pistol, 16 grenades, nine AK magazines, 269 live bullets and two magazines.
Earlier, security forces had arrested three Kashmir-based Lashkar-e-Taiba ultras with a huge cache of arms and ammunition besides cash during an operation along the LoC in Rajouri district where the trio had come to collect a weapon consignment. On December 27-28, three terror operatives of J&K Ghaznavi Force were arrested in Balakote area near the LoC with six hand grenades and posters of the outfit. While investigating the Ghaznavi Force module, police had made another recovery of arms and ammunition from Balakote’s Dabbi village bordering the LoC on January 3.
The total recovery of arms and ammunition made so far based on the disclosures of arrested terror associates include 13 grenades, three pistols, five pistol magazines, 105 pistol bullets, four Pakistan-made balloons, one flag of Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen and 18 posters of J&K Ghaznavi Force, police said.
Meanwhile, J&K DGP Dilbag Singh on Monday chaired a high-level meeting to review security in Jammu zone and arrangements for the Republic Day with senior officers of police, Army, BSF, CRPF and intelligence agencies. Underlining that there is a need to consolidate peace in 2021, the DGP said the new year will have its own challenges as novel strategies have been adopted by Pakistan with new terror operatives emerging on the ground.
The DGP complimented the officers for excellent work done during the previous year. He said 2020 was very good as far as maintenance of peace, law & order and counter-insurgency operations were concerned. He said there were inputs about terrorists trying to carry out mischief to disturb communal harmony, peace and order and asked the officers to take care of vulnerable persons and places to thwart nefarious designs of the enemies.
He hailed the proactive approach and preventive measures of J&K Police and other security forces which led to the recovery of huge arms and ammunition in 2020, besides eliminating 225 terrorists. Well-coordinated surveillance systems must be ensured to undo the nefarious plans of Pakistan, the DGP said.
