In a major success, Uttar Pradesh police's Special Task Force and Jammu and Kashmir police on Friday nabbed a Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist from Ateria Railway station in Sitapur district in a joint operation.
Additional Superintendent of Police, STF, Vijay Bhushan told reporters that an Italian-made pistol, seven cartridges, maps of Pakistan and Afghanistan and some objectionable literature were recovered from Imran who had been absconding after an encounter with Army in Kupwara district of Kashmir in December last year.
Two accomplices of Imran had been killed in the December encounter as also two Army officials while he himself suffered bullet injury in his legs but managed to escape.
Acting on a tip-off that Imran was planning to cross over to Nepal, the police team nabbed him while he was waiting to board a train to Lakhimpur-Kheri, he said.
After escaping from the encounter, Imran had gone to Rae Bareli to take treatment for his leg injury, Bhushan added.
