Srinagar: Security forces in Jammu and Kashmir claim to have arrested two persons suspected for having been linked to Wednesday's suicide attack on a CRPF camp. The first person arrested is a suspected Pakistani terrorist from Multan and was picked from the Rampura Chattabal area of Srinagar late on Thursday night.
On a tip off about presence of two terrorists in Chattabal, the special operation group cordoned off the area and nabbed Abu Talib, a resident of Multan, sources said. The spot where he was picked up from is a little over a km from Bemina area
The Pakistani terrorist opened fire on the SOG personnel with a pistol but he was overpowered and arrested, the sources said. The terrorist told police that he is a resident of Multan in Pakistan and was operating under the alias of Abu Talib, they said.
The first person arrested is a suspected Pakistani terrorist from Multan while the other person was arrested from Uri.
The other person was arrested from Uri. But police are yet to confirm if they had a hand in the attack that killed five CRPF personnel. Two of the four attackers had escaped on Wednesday. Meanwhile, police say they are on the lookout for a third person too.
Sources said the breakthrough of the first arrest was achieved when the intelligence agencies traced a call made by the terrorist to his handlers in Pakistan soon after the attack on Wednesday.
