Srinagar/UNI: Police on Wednesday claimed to have busted a Jash-e-Mohammad (JeM) module by arresting three Over Ground Workers (OGWs) and recovered arms and ammunition in central Kashmir district of Budgam.

A senior police official told UNI that following specific information, police and 50 Rashtriya Rifles (RR) in a joint operation arrested three associates of JeM, who were active in Chadoora in Budgam.

“The accused were identified as Dilawar Sofi, a resident of Donniwari and Sameer Yousuf Ganie, a resident of Magreypoora,” he said, adding the identity of the third person has been withheld due to security reasons.
