Jammu, February 17
A coordinator and facilitator of terror activities of various groups was arrested from the Jammu airport on Wednesday soon after his arrival from abroad, the police said here.
The man was identified by the police as Sher Ali.
“Sher Ali is the main coordinator and facilitator of terrorist activities of various groups. He is involved in facilitating infiltration of terrorists, smuggling of arms and ammunition and narcotics from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) to Indian territory from the Balakote area of Poonch district,” the police said in a statement here.
Police sources said Ali was arrested based on specific information immediately after his arrival at the Jammu airport.
“He has been arrested in connection with a case lodged at the Mendhar police station last year. He is also involved in many other cases (related to his terror activities),” the statement said.
Sitting abroad, the police said, Ali facilitated the entry of two Pakistani terrorists from the Dabbi area of the Balakote sector (Poonch) on the intervening night of November 24 and 25 last year at the behest of his Pakistani handler, Sultan.
Both the terrorists of the J&K Ghaznavi Force were later killed in an encounter on December 13 last year in the Poshana area of Surankote. — PTI
