Baramulla, Sep 26 (KNS):Jammu and Kashmir police have apprehended one Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorist and five terror associates, including two women and a juvenile, in north Kashmir's Baramulla district.

This operation according to the police also led to the discovery of a substantial cache of arms and ammunition, including grenades and pistols.

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Baramulla, Amog Nagpure, addressed a press conference in Baramulla, detailing the operation. He mentioned that the series of arrests began when two suspects were detained on September 21 in Uri. 

"Among those arrested were Yaseen Ahmad Shah, who had joined the proscribed terror outfit LeT/ TRF. Subsequently, a joint team of Baramulla Police, Army, and CAPF conducted a successful operation to apprehend him. The search resulted in the recovery of incriminating materials, along with arms and ammunition, from Yaseen Ahmad Shah," he said.

Further investigations led to the identification and arrest of his associates, including Parvaiz Ahmad Shah, Nigeena, Aafreena, Mudasir Ahmad Rather, and Showkat Ahmad Malik.

The SSP said that the group was found to be operating under the directives of Pakistan-based handlers, with plans to recruit more terrorists and carry out attacks in Baramulla and neighboring areas.

He also said that this operation exposed an arms supply network spanning from Kashmir to Poonch. "We are actively tracking the supply routes and individuals involved in this network," the SSP said, adding that the arrested juvenile will be subject to proceedings in the Juvenile Justice Board under the Juvenile Justice Act.(KNS)
