J&K: TRF terrorist arrested; terror attack foiled

The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Sunday, in a major success, foiled a plan by the ultras to carry out an attack in the city with the arrest of a terrorist affiliated with The Resistance Front (TRF), an offshoot of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), near the Jammu railway station, besides recovering one pistol and cartridges.

“On the basis of credible inputs about the movement of Kashmir-based terrorists to Jammu for a specific task to create terror in the area, Special Operation Group (SOG) Jammu laid special nakas at different locations of Jammu city,” ADGP Jammu Mr Singh added.

During checking near railway station Jammu, one person, who was pillion riding on a scooty, got down 50 to 50 metres behind police checking point.

On seeing cops he started moving fast towards nearby by-lane. His suspicious movement led the police party to chase him and finally he was overpowered at some distance.
