Terrorist With Pak Links involved in Narwal Blasts Arrested in Jammu

Terrorist With Pak Links involved in Narwal Blasts Arrested in Jammu

Jammu and Kashmir DGP Dilbag Singh on Thursday said that the J&K police have arrested one person in relation with the twin blasts in Jammu’s Narwal which injured nine on January 21.

Arif, a terrorist from Reasi, with connections in Pakistan, has been arrested, he said in a press conference.

He was a former teacher in Jammu, appointed under the  Rehbar-e-Taleem scheme of J&K govt.

“The IEDs were timed in such a way to inflict maximum casualties,” he said, adding that the police followed the standard procedure and saved many lives.

 “This is the first time we have recovered a perfume IED. We have not recovered any perfume IED before. The IED will blast if anyone tries to press or open it. Our special team will handle that IED”, DGP Dilbag Singh said addressing the press conference in Jammu.

“Pakistan is infamous for propagating terrorism from its land and for killing hundreds of innocent people across the world. Jammu and Kashmir is on target for some time. They (Pakistan) want to create a communal divide among the people in J&K” he added.

“Arif is a government employee and is an active terrorist of Lashkar-e-Toiba outfit. He was working at the behest of Qasim, a Reasi resident and his uncle Qamardin, also a Reasi resident, presently in Pakistan, who are part of LeT,” the DGP said. He said Arif was involved in three IED blast incidents—Shahstri Nagar, Katra and January 21 incident of Narwal, Jammu.

“So far we had seen IED with explosive materials, sticky bombs and timer fitted IEDs but a new type of IED was recovered from Arif which is Perfume IED. This IED is in a bottle form and seems like a perfume bottle but contains explosive material,” the DGP said, adding that “since the IED is new to us, experts will see how harmful and how powerful it can be. We have not touched it so far.”

He said that the main aim of these IEDs is to target innocent people and to trigger communal hatred in the Jammu region. “Arif will not only lose his job but a strong dossier will be prepared against him. He was a very clever operative. He had burnt all the evidence be that his clothes, shoes and that he even set ablaze his mobile phone as well. But police worked hard on even small inputs and leads that led to the arrest of Arif,” he said.

The DGP said that IED’s received by Arif were air-dropped through drones. “He has confessed to the crime,” he said. To a query about Danghri, Rajouri incident and the fate of probe, the DGP said that the investigations are in the advance stage and the output will be shared with the media men shortly.

Asked about further links of Arif and possible Kashmir connection, the DGP said that so far it has not been seen that Kashmiri youth are coming to Jammu for terrorism or for that matter Jammu youth going to Kashmir. “Further investigations are on,” he said.
