Two youth of Pulwama district have been arrested by the National Investigation Agency for ‘waging a war’ against the Government of India and ‘setting up bases in Delhi and other parts of India’, reported the Tribune.
The report added that both have been arrested in the ‘Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) conspiracy case’.
They have been identified as Tanveer Ahmad Ganie (29) of Mandoora and Ahmad Mir (23) of Gadapora and have been sent to Kot Balwal jail in Jammu.
The report added that both youths were at the Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu facing the Public Safety Act (PSA) before they were taken into custody by the NIA.
The NIA court sent them into seven days’ custody. “During the investigation, it was found that an accused arrested earlier, Sajjad Ahmad Khan, was in regular contact with these accused over WhatsApp during the relevant period,” the report said.
Sajjad was arrested by the Special Cell, Delhi Police, on March 21 and handed over to the NIA the next day on the charges of waging a war against New Delhi and for hatching a criminal conspiracy by the top leadership of JeM to strengthen the base of the outfit in India by recruiting persons for carrying out terrorist acts.
