Police in the Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir claimed to have busted two militant modules of Jaish-e-Mohammad by arresting 11 persons, including three “hybrid” ultras, an official spokesman said.
Incriminating material, including arms and ammunition, have been recovered from their possession, the spokesman said.
“Based on credible inputs that JeM is planning to carry out attacks on armed forces in Srigufwara/Bijbehara areas of Anantnag, multiple nakas/checkpoints were established at various locations,” the spokesman said.
He said during checking at one of such checkpoints at Sakhras crossing, Srigufwara, three people riding a bike were intercepted.
They tried to flee but were apprehended.
The police claimed that the trio disclosed that they are associates of JeM and are in direct contact with Pakistan-based handlers.
“Upon their further disclosure two more militant associates were arrested,” the spokesman said.
He said police busted another module in the Bijbehara area by arresting six alleged militant associates, including a juvenile, and recovered incriminating material from their possession.
