Srinagar/UNI: Two militant associates of the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) were arrested by the Jammu and Kashmir Police and explosive material were recovered from their possession in Kashmir, police said on Monday.

The arrests were made in south Kashmir’s Awantipora sub district.

Police said the two militant associates were identified as Zahid Ahmad Lone of Naristan Tral and Shakeel Ahmad Malik alias Abu Dujana of Noor Pora Awantipora who were arrested based on a specific input.

"Based on specific input, Awantipora Police along with 42RR and CRPF arrested the two terrorist associates linked with proscribed terror outfit JeM. Incriminating materials including explosive materials have been recovered from their possession," a police statement said.

"Preliminary investigation revealed that the arrested duo were working as terrorist associates of proscribed terror outfit JeM and involved in providing shelter, logistic support and transportation of arms/ammunition to the active terrorists in Tral and Awantiprora areas," it said.

"Moreover, both the arrested associates were in touch with Pakistan based self styled terror commanders on different social media platforms and were planning to join terrorist ranks. A case under relevant sections of law has been registered at Police Station Tral and further investigation has been initiated," it added.
