Amarnath Terror Attack: Police Detain PDP MLA’s Driver For Questioning

The Jammu and Kashmir police on Friday arrested a man in connection with the Amarnath Yatra terror attack. Touseef Ahmad Wani, the man arrested by Kulgam police, works as a driver with PDP MLA Aijaz Ahmad Mir. Mir is an MLA from Wachi constituency in Shopian district in South Kashmir.

Wani is a resident of Pulwama district. Wani was deputed as the MLA’s driver from the security wing of J&K police seven months ago. Inspector General of Police of the Kashmir Valley Muneer Kahn said Touseef, who has been found to have links with militants, is being questioned. “He is cooperating with us and spilling the beans,” he said.

Sources say Wani is being interrogated in connection with several militancy-related cases. Sources have further revealed that two others have been arrested for their alleged involvement in the attack.

Seven pilgrims, including five women, were killed and 19 others injured when terrorists opened fire at a bus carrying Amarnath yatris in Anantnag recently.

The Jammu and Kashmir police constituted a six-member special investigation team (SIT) on Friday to probe the Amarnath attack. Security officials believe that the attack on Amarnath pilgrims, a first in 17 years, shows that terrorists were desperate to seek revenge after killings of several Lashkar militants.

The attack came the same day when police said it had busted a module of LeT and arrested one Sandeep Sharma alias Aadil belonging to Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pardesh. Sandeep has been working for Lashkar since past many years and was involved in several ATM loot cases.
