The police claimed that Sehran Sheikh, alias Abu Zubair, of Malipeth in Kishtwar was working as an ISI agent and had exchanged important information with Pakistan.

He had sent many video clips and pictures of important installations of security forces and the Nashri tunnel to the terror organisation. We have arrested him and further investigation is on.”

The police claimed that the arrested person had confessed to his involvement. They said they had found that he had exchanged videos, including those of paramilitary forces establishments, with Pakistani numbers. With his arrest, the police have foiled a major terror plot. — OC
