Police arrests suspected militant who made ‘failed attempt’ to attack CRPF convoy in Banihal

JK Police on Monday arrested a suspected militant who made an abortive attempt to target a CRPF convoy on Jammu-Srinagar highway on Saturday, reported the Press Trust of India.

A CRPF vehicle had suffered slight damage when a Santro car went up in flames after an explosion at Tethar village, seven kms from Banihal, shortly after a Jammu-bound convoy crossed the Jawahar Tunnel, the gateway to Kashmir valley.

According to the report, the driver of the private vehicle managed to flee before the fire engulfed the vehicle and turned it into a mangled heap of iron.
