The students were nabbed from the hostel of CT Institute of Engineering Management and Technology, located in Shahpur on the outskirts of Jalandhar.

The Hush Post: In a joint operation, the Punjab Police and Special Operations Group (SoG) of Jammu and Kashmir Police on Wednesday busted a terror module of Kashmiri terror outfit, Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind (AGH) in Jalandhar and arrested three students. 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.

The 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, a resident of Rajpora in Srinagar (J&K). Zahid was detained along with Mohd. Idriss Shah and Yusuf Rafiq Bhatt, both hailing from Pulwama, J&K.

In a press statement issued here, DGP Suresh Arora said that ‘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 under various sections of the IPC, Arms Act, Explosives Act and Unlawful Activities Prevention Act has been registered in Sadar Jalandhar Police Station.

‘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.

The 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, a resident of 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.
