With the arrest of two militants, including a municipal councillor affiliated to the People’s Democratic Party, Jammu and Kashmir police on Sunday claimed to have unearthed a plot by Pakistan-based Lashker-e-Tayyeba to kill former chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.

The arrest of the PDP councillor once again highlighted the nexus between militants and politicians in the Valley. Abdul Waheed’s alleged links with LeT came to light within a month after the arrest of two local leaders of Congress and National Conference allegedly involved in helping militants in carrying out several suicide attacks in the city.
