JAMMU: Ramban Police on Saturday claimed to have cracked the case of a blast near a police post with the arrest of two accused.
Senior superintendent of police (SSP) Mohita Sharma said that on 2 August, some unidentified persons exploded a device near the police post in which two police personnel had sustained minor splinter injuries.
“Soon after the incident, security forces, including police, army and CRPF launched a massive joint operation in adjoining areas in order to apprehend the person responsible for the attack,” the SSP added.
“During the course of investigation, a hand-written piece of paper was found near the post in which it was claimed was carried out by J&K Ghaznavi Forces (JKGF),” she said.
As JKGF earlier used to have presence only in Rajouri-Poonch districts of the union territory, the SSP contacted SSP Rajouri who informed that one Talib Hussain, who was associated with Lashkar-e-Taiba, was arrested on July 4.
During his questioning it came to light that he had visited Gool area of Ramban district in 2021 to give some money to a local.
“An intense cordon and search operation was launched in Gool market area following which, one suspect namely Shah Din Padyar was picked up for questioning,” SSP Ramban added.
“During questioning, the suspect confessed to the hatching of criminal conspiracy to the effect of reviving the militancy in Ramban area which was to start with the onset of lobbying of explosive device on Police Post Ind.”
“He also disclosed the identity of his accomplice in the conspiracy as Mohd Farooq,” police officer said.
“The accused used to act as handlers of the JKGF wherein they were given funds and were in the process of recruiting the youth to revive militancy in Ramban.”
“The duo confessed that Mohd Farooq received Rs 50,000 cash from a person whose identity is yet to be ascertained and who had assigned the task of attacking security establishments to Shahdin and Farooq,” SSP Ramban said.
