Srinagar (NVI): Security forces today arrested a newly recruited Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist who was missing since September 11 from Pampore area of Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama.

A police spokesman said that J&K police along with Army’s 50 RR and 185 battalion of CRPF arrested a newly recruited militant identified as Faisal Ahmad Dar, a resident of Khankah Bagh, Pampore affiliated with proscribed outfit Laishker-e-Toiba. “He was caught at Pampore near Konibal crossing,” the spokesman said.

He said that the militant had gone missing on September 11. He joined the militant ranks of Laishker-e-Toiba and was active in Anantnag, Awantipora and Pampore area, the spokesman added.

Pertinent to mention here that the Dar had uploaded his audio message on social media on 13 September wherein he had claimed to have joined the militant ranks and requested his parents not to look for him as he had “chosen his path.”

“Incriminating material of proscribed outfit Laishker-e-Toiba has been recovered from Dar,” the police spokesman said, adding that a case under relevant sections of Law has been registered at Police Station, Pampore.
