Pulwama has been the focus of anti-insurgency operations in the state since 40 paramilitary troopers were killed in a car bomb attack there on February 14.

Khan said Murtaza was arrested following a specific input, and a Chinese pistol, two magazines and eight pistol rounds were recovered from him. “The duo [Murtaza and Aqib] has been involved in arranging transport and logistics for the JeM terrorists, who are involved in firing on a civilian and injuring him critically,” he said.

Khan said Irfan-ul-Haq has also been in contact with the JeM and obtained grenades from them. “He lobbed a grenade on Central Reserve Police Force Camp, Awantipora, and has been operating various WhatsApp groups and transferring, sharing incriminating material with some outside the country,” Khan
said. On Sunday, police said it arrested three JeM operatives two days after they were involved in an attack on a police post in Srinagar on Friday. A constable was injured in the attack.
