In the Budgam region of Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian Army’s 34 RR unit detained one hybrid terrorist from the outlawed terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), according to officials on Sunday. Sangam Budgam native Arshid Ahmad Bhat was recognised as the terrorist.
A joint squad from the 2RR and the Srinagar Police conducted the arrest at Lawaypura.
The authorities also seized 50 bullets, 5 magazines, and 5 guns, among other incriminating items. Also taken from the terrorist were two hand grenades.
At the Shalteng Police Station, an incident has been reported.
The Indian Army’s 34 RR unit and the Kulgam Police earlier on May 1 captured a “hybrid” terrorist from the outlawed Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) organisation in Kashmir.
The LeT terrorist who was apprehended, according to the police, was in contact with terrorists located in Pakistan as well as local terrorists and was given the responsibility of carrying out terrorist attacks.
The hybrid terrorist was also engaged in housing, logistics, and other forms of assistance for the terrorists, including moving their weapons, ammo, and explosives into the area of Kulgam.
According to the Kashmir police, the terrorist who was apprehended is Yamin Yousaf Bhat, a local of Kulgam’s Gadihama.
Police reported that they had seized incriminating items, including a pistol, a magazine, two hand grenades, and 51 (9 mm) pistol rounds.
According to the pertinent legal provisions, a FIR has been filed in Kulgam Police Station against the aforementioned terrorist, and further investigation into the crime is ongoing.
Because of the terrorist’s familiarity with the district’s topography and ease in selecting soft targets, the capture of the hybrid terrorist is a success for the Kulgam Police.
He was also in touch with terrorists operating out of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, and he was acting at their direction. According to the police, additional arrests and recoveries are anticipated in this particular case.
