Police probing woman OGW’s links with Hizb

Tribune News Service

Srinagar, November 14

A day after a woman overground worker (OGW) was arrested with a large cache of grenades and bullets, the police continued to question her about her accomplices.

Sources in the police said the woman was linked to militants of the Hizbul Mujahideen.

A senior police officer said the woman was being questioned about the cache and the police was treating it as a “case of terror crime”. “We are investigating her role and trying to find out about her accomplices,” the officer said.

The police officer said so far no arrests had been made. “We might make some arrests over the course of the investigation but so far we have not made any more arrests,” he said.

The police had recovered on Tuesday at least 20 grenades and a cache of bullets from a woman on the outskirts of Srinagar. The recovery was made after the police intercepted the woman, who was travelling in a taxi, at Lawaypora on the Baramulla-Srinagar highway.

The police had said the checkpoint was set up after a credible input.
