JAMMU (TIP): Another Pakistani militant was captured and four more were shot dead in a fierce gunbattle deep in the Rafiabad jungles of Baramulla as the Army and the Jammu and Kashmir Police wound up a four-day joint operation on August 27.
The captured militant, who initially identified himself as Sajjad Ahmed, 22, is said to be from Muzaffargarh, on the banks of the Chenab river, in southwest Punjab of Pakistan. Security agencies said the five made up a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) module from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
Sajjad was forced to come out of hiding from a natural cave as the Army lobbed “chilli grenades”.
The arrest comes three weeks after another LeT suspect from Pakistan, Mohammad Naved, was captured following an attack on a Border Security Force convoy in Udhampur. It is learnt that the National Investigation Agency, which is pursuing the Udhampur case, is in touch with the Jammu and Kashmir Police to ascertain if Sajjad had any links with Naved.
