Srinagar/UNI: Three militant associates of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) were arrested in Kashmir, police said on Saturday.

The arrests were made in Sopore sub district of north Kashmir by a joint team of security forces on Tuesday afternoon.

Police said a joint naka was set up by the joint teams of Police, Army and CRPF at Chinar crossing Darpora and during checking they noticed three people moving about suspiciously.

They were subsequently asked to stop.

"But then they tried to flee from the spot, however they were apprehended tactfully by the vigilant security forces.

"Upon their personal search, two pistols, two pistol magazines, thirteen pistol rounds and a hand grenade were recovered from their possession," a police statement said.

The three were identified as Arafat Majeed Dar, Tauseef Ahmed Dar – both residents of Sopore and Momin Nazir Khan originally a resident of Sopore who presently lives in Natipora Srinagar.

"Preliminary investigation has revealed that the arrested persons are associates/OGWs of proscribed terrorist organisation LeT and have been providing logistical and other materialistic support to terrorists," the statement said.

A case has been registered at Police Station Bomai under relevant sections of law and further investigation is going on.
