As per the information available so far, a joint operation was carried out by the 17 Rashtriya Rifles and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) who raided his hideout in the district and arrested him alive.

Terming the arrest of the terrorist a “major blow” to the Hizbul Mujahideen and its plan to revive terrorism in the district, the official said he had joined militancy in 2016 and remained active by way of recruiting youths into the ranks of the proscribed group.

In fact, recently two Hizbul terrorists, Usman Qadir and Yasir, were arrested, from whom the security forces also seized a large number of weapons.

He said the police worked meticulously on the leads obtained about his whereabouts and pre-empted his move to effect the revival of militancy in the area by arresting him. A case under relevant sections of law has been registered at Kishtwar police station and further investigation is underway, the official said.
