ADGP Jammu Mukesh Singh on Monday said that three terror modules have been busted in the Union Territory, one in Jammu and two in Rajouri.
The police arrested seven people after the operation. “Bashir of LeT, a resident of Doda was trying some activity in Jammu. Fasal Munir is the mastermind, who is a resident of Talab Khali khan of Jammu. Habib and Mian Sohail of Kathua were also arrested. They have received many Drone sorties. Faisal had earlier attacked Amarnath Yatra and was also arrested,” said the ADGP.
“In June 2020, a drone was dropped. That consignment was also for this Jammu terror module. Finances also used to come through the drone,” informed the police.
According to police, their work was to receive ammunition through drones and send it to Kashmir on the instruction of their Pakistani handler.
Target killing was the motive as silencers have been recovered, said the ADGP.
