Baramulla: Police in Baramulla assisted by Indian security agencies have busted a module of Hizbul Mujahideen which has been active in the area. This module was being spearheaded by Hizbul Mujahideen commander Parvez Wani alias Mubashir, resident of Gagloora Handwara, the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Baramulla Imtiyaz Hussain said in a press conference on Sunday.
The SSP said that Ansarullah Tantaray, resident of Raipora Palhalan, Abdul Rashid Bhat, resident of Minipora Sopore, and Mehraj ud Din Kak, resident of Andargam Pattan, had plans to send recruits to Pakistan on a valid visa to have them trained in arms in Pakistan-held Kashmir. The SSP said that Abdul Rashid Bhat had visited Pakistan in May this year and had obtained training in Khalid Bin Waleed camp of HM located in Pakistan-held Kashmir. Abdul had got the visa from Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi on the recommendation of a separatist organisation, the SSP said. He said that arms, ammunition and one lakh rupees in Indian currency were recovered from his possession. The module had not only been luring boys to militancy but was also providing logistic support to members of HM, the SSP said.
The SSP said that recently the police in Baramulla saved 10 boys who were to be inducted in militant ranks. These boys were handed over to their parents.
The SSP added that going to Pakistan on a valid visa has become a new trend, as the borders are sealed more tightly.
