Kulgam: Jammu and Kashmir Police has produced a charge sheet under UAPA case before NIA court against an alleged militant associate in connection with a case, registered nearly three months ago, regarding fleeing of two militants, police said on Monday.

Police produced the Charge sheet before NIA court Anantnag within “stipulated time”, a police spokesman said in a statement.

He said that on 26 September 2020, some militants fired indiscriminately upon policemen near police station Behibagh.

“However active police personnel retaliated effectively, but (militants), taking advantage of darkness and with the help of their (militant) associate fled from the spot,” the police spokesman said.

Regarding the incident, he said, a case (FIR No 03/20) under section 7/25, 27 A Act, 13,16,18,20,23 UAPA was registered in police station Behibagh and investigation was set into motion.

“During the course of investigation of the instant case, it came to surface that two (militants) of LeT namely Amir Ahmad Mir and Amir Manzoor Ganie (both killed since) were involved in the act,” he said, adding, “Further investigation revealed the involvement of one (militant) associate namely Suhail Ahmad in the commission of the instant case.”

With “strenuous efforts”, the spokesman said the militant associate was arrested and from his possession “illegal arms and ammunition along with other incriminating material was recovered.” However, the details of arms and ammunition were not revealed.

“Investigation of the case was carried out in a professional manner and all evidence including digital evidence were collected by the Investigation team and on 15 January 2022 the charge sheet of the case was produced before NIA court Anantnag,” he said.
