Srinagar, February 19
The Jammu and Kashmir Police have arrested three persons allegedly owing allegiance to a shadow terror outfit of the banned Lashkar-e-Toiba for their involvement in the attack on the son of the owner of a popular eatery here earlier this week, a senior officer said on Friday.
“We have arrested three men who were involved in the attack on Krishna Dhaba in which one civilian was injured,” Inspector General of Police (IGP) of Kashmir zone Vijay Kumar told reporters here.
The arrested accused have been identified as Suhail Ahmad Mir and Owais Manzoor Sofi of Nowgam in Anantnag and Vilayat Aziz Mir of Pulwama.
Aakash Mehra, the son of the owner of Krishna Dhaba located in a high-security area of the city, was shot at from a close range and critically wounded on Wednesday evening.
The Muslim Janbaz Force, a terror outfit which was active in early 1990s, had claimed responsibility for the attack.
Vijay Kumar said immediately after the attack on Wednesday evening, when the envoys from 24 nations were on a two-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir, police teams under the supervision of Deputy Inspector General Amit Kumar were formed to probe the case. — PTI
