Security forces arrested a militant associate in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore sub-district, police said on Wednesday.

The arrest was made a day after Lashkar-e-Taiba's militant associate was arrested in the neighbouring Baramulla district.

Police said, "Militant associate Arif Hussain Bhat of Mundji Bomai Sopore, who was in constant contact with terrorist handlers across the border, was apprehended following information by Sopore Police along with the Army’s 22 Rashtriya Rifles and 179 battalion CRPF."

“During questioning, the subject admitted his terrorist links, and based on his disclosure, a live hand grenade was recovered,” police said.

Accordingly, a case under relevant sections of UA (P)A was registered at Police Station Bomai, and the investigation is underway.

Police said this operation further ascertained the continued efforts of Sopore Police against anti-national elements by thwarting a potentially grave terrorist incident in Sopore.
