SRINAGAR: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrested on Thursday an operative of The Resistance Force (TRF), a front of the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba, during searches in Srinagar.
Arsalan Feroz alias Arsalan Soub of Zaldagar in Srinagar’s MR Gunj was taken into custody on the charge of recruiting Kashmiri young men for the terrorist outfit. He’s among at least four people arrested so far following specific intelligence that LeT/TRF commanders Sajjad Gul, Salim Rehmani alias Abu Saad and Saifullah Sajid Jutt had planned violence in J&K and elsewhere in India through radicalised recruits.
As part of the conspiracy, they have been enrolling youths for recon of targets, and to ferry arms for LeT and TRF, an NIA statement said. The anti-terrorism agency has seized incriminating documents and digital devices during searches at various locations in and around Srinagar.
