Early Times Report
Srinagar, Nov 14: Even as the Jammu and Kashmir Police on Thursday claimed to have arrested Hizbul Mujahideen militant, Muhammed Rafiq Bhat from a village in South Kashmir's Pulwama district, the arrest may throw up surprises in the coming days.
Sources said the arrested militant during interrogation has told the interrogators that some of his colleagues were having contacts with some of politicians and their workers, mainly in south Kashmir areas.
Sources said his confessions may land some politicians in trouble for their alleged links with the militants. Sources said police was trying to get as much information as possible from him whereas it may lead to arrest of more of militants and their over-ground workers. "We are getting considerable information from him including militant plans for the winter months," said a source in the police department.
Sources said there was a possibility that the arrest would also prevent indoctrination of some more youth into the folds of militancy.
Sources said the arrest is being seen as a major achievement for the police force in the recent past. "We are expecting big leads from him but that sensitive information cannot be shared," said a police official on the condition of anonymity.
As per sources Muhammad Rafiq Bhat son of Mohammad Ashraf Bhat of Achan village of Pulwama has been arrested from his uncle's house.
Rafiq had joined militant ranks in September 2018.
Sources said Rafiq was believed to be involved in weapon looting case from MLA Wachi, Aijaz Ahmad Mir's residence in Srinagar.
A PSO of Mir decamped with 8 weapons from his (Mir's) residence in Srinagar on 28 of September, 2018.
The incident had put the state police to embarrassment and since then the police had intensified the chase to grab the militants.
