One cannot deny that the separatists in Kashmir are allegedly in constant touch with Pakistan based terror groups and have direct relation to run the anti-India movements. Unearthing the same, Jammu and Kashmir police on Monday arrested a Tehreek-e-Hurriyat (TeH) leader for his alleged links with terrorists.

In a statement, the police spokesperson said that Noor Mohammad alias Fayaz Malik of Fiqsoo-Thatri village of Doda was an alleged over-ground worker (OGW) of terrorists. “Noor Mohammad was arrested from Jammu and Kashmir’s Doda district,” the police spokesperson added.

“Mohammad was wanted in a militancy related case. He is a self-styled leader of TeH, Doda and has previously remained an associate of Geelani,” the spokesperson noted. Terming the arrest as a major breakthrough, the spokesperson said Mohammad was active in radicalising the youth of the valley and encourage them to join militancy.

The spokesperson further said, “He also had close links with Qamar-ul-Zaan, a terrorist who was recently arrested in Uttar Pradesh besides a local active militant Usama -bin-Javed, who hails from Dachhan area of Kishtwar.” “Reportedly the arrested OGW is running a school at Thathri in Doda,” he concluded.

Terming the arrest as a “major breakthrough”, the officer said Mohammad was active in radicalising the youth of the valley and encourage them to join militancy.

He also had close links with Qamar-ul-Zaan, a terrorist who was recently arrested in Uttar Pradesh besides a local active militant Usama -bin-Javed, who hails from Dachhan area of Kishtwar, the officer said.

Notably, the TeH was founded by hardline Hurriyat Conference leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani in 2004 after parting ways with Jamaat-e-Islami. At present, it is being headed by his lieutenant Mohammad Ashraf Sahrai.
