Baramulla: The Jammu and Kashmir Police and Army 22 RR declared on Saturday that a hybrid terrorist affiliate of the terrorist organisation Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) has been apprehended in the Baramulla region.
The terrorist was identified as Mohd Iqbal Bhat, a resident of Tilgam Payeen. He was taken into custody at a checkpoint in Baramulla’s Kreeri neighbourhood.
On the basis of reliable information regarding terrorist activity in the region, joint parties of the Police and Army 29 RR established Naka at Kreeri. The police claim that one hybrid terrorist from the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) organisation was apprehended during the Naka check, along with some guns and ammunition.
Seven rounds of pistol ammunition, a pistol magazine, and other incriminating things were also discovered on the hybrid terrorist. According to officials, the terrorist was actively involved in providing logistical support for terrorist acts and maintained contact with Pakistani terrorists Saifullah and Abu Zarar.
The hybrid terrorist’s effective apprehension has helped to thwart important terror plots and the brains behind multiple recent attacks against PRI members and foreigners. A terrorist strike on the national highway between Narbal and Renji also involved deliberately supplying chemicals and other materials for an IED.
