Police on Sunday claimed to have arrested the financial manager of Lashkar-e-Taiba in northern town of Sopore.
A police spokesman said they nabbed Mudasir Ahmad Dar, an LeT operative who was managing finances for the militant outfit in and around Sopore.
"He had been working for the banned terrorist organisation since long and using code name Muviya," the police spokesman said.
Dar's arrest became possible after a "disclosure by Pakistani militant Hafiz Naveed (alias Fahadullah) who was recently arrested by police".
"The arrested militant disclosed that Dar has been managing finances of the outfit in and around Sopore, besides providing logistic support to the terrorists of the outfit. He has also been distributing money to the dependants of the killed terrorists," the police official said. The police claimed to have recovered a "note of one million dollar" along with two tokens and one authentication certificate.
"The note along with tokens is used as a novelty item having no financial obligation on part of its issuing authority. The current market value of the note is Rs 4500 ($75) only. This thing has been at times used to cheat people around the world," the spokesman added.
