In a joint operation, the Punjab Police and Special Operations Group (SoG) of Jammu and Kashmir Police on Wednesday arrested three students to bust a terror module of Kashmiri terror outfit, Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind (AGH), in Jalandhar. The module also has links with the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).


The students were nabbed from the hostel of CT Institute of Engineering Management and Technology, located in Shahpur on the outskirts of Jalandhar, DGP Suresh Arora said in a statement issued here.


Yasir-Rafiq-Bhatt-JalandharThe joint team, which conducted a raid at the hostel early this morning, also recovered two weapons, including an Assault Rifle, as well as explosives from the hostel room of B. Tech (Civil) Student of second semester, Zahid Gulzar s/o Gulzar Ahmad Rather r/o Rajpora, PS Awantipora, Srinagar (J&K). Zahid was detained along with Mohd. Idriss Shah @ Nadeem r/o Pulwama J&K, and Yusuf Rafiq Bhatt, r/o Noorpura, Pulwama J&K.


Zahid-Gulzar-JalandharThe DGP said the arrests followed the development and corroboration of various leads/inputs about the presence and activities of certain militant organizations/individuals operating in J&K and Punjab.


A case (FIR no. 166 dated 10.10.18, u/s 121, 121-A, 120-B IPC and 25/54/59 Arms Act, 3/4/5 Explosive Act, 10/13/17/18/ 18-B/20/38/39/40 Unlawful Prevention Act) has been registered in PS Sadar Jalandhar in this regard.


Further investigations are in progress and the Punjab Police is working closely with J&K Police to unravel the entire conspiracy and network built by these outfits/individuals in Punjab and J&K, said the DGP.


Mohd-Idris-Shah-JalandharThe DGP said the busting of the terror module belonging to AGH, and the recovery of weapons in Jalandhar, was indicative of efforts by Pakistan’s ISI to expand the arc of militancy on India’s western border. He said investigations have also revealed that the module has links with Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).


It may be mentioned that Gazi Ahmad Malik, r/o Shopian, J&K, was recently picked-up by Punjab Police from Banur, Patiala, (where he was studying in Aryans Group Polytechnic College). It was learnt that Gazi was closely related to Adil Bashir Sheikh, a J&K Police SPO who had fled with 7 Rifles from the residence of PDP MLA house in Srinagar and was suspected to have joined Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, a militant group. He was later handed over to the J&K Police for further investigations.


Version of CT Group Chairman Charanjit Singh Channi

Charanjit S Channi, Chairman CT Group while narrating the incident of arrested Kashmir students said, “Last night around 11 pm, the police authorities called us and requested us to extend our cooperation and support regarding the suspected students from Kashmir. When we reached the campus, police asked us to stay near reception and let them do their needful job. After tapping students from hostel room number 94, they covered the faces of two Kashmir students of B. Tech stream and their one guest. On asking the police officials regarding the reason, they said to wait for the complete investigation and extend a support. We don’t know what police have recovered from their room as it was all done secretly.”


“ We don’t check the bags of every student or an outsider because of their privacy issues and we can’t suspect anybody or everybody visiting the campus.”
