Srinagar: Nearly a month after the Amarnath terror attack, police have reportedly cracked the case and busted the entire module behind the dastardly attack.
According to sources, the Jammu and Kashmir Police has arrested overground workers–militants without weapons, in police language.
Call details have reportedly nailed these overground workers, said sources. According to sources, police have got vital information on terror funding for the attack. Terrorists used code words, local conduits and their houses to stay in Jammu and Kashmir, said sources.
Three Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists behind the Amarnath terror attack on July 10 are still at large.
LeT commander Abu Ismail, a Pakistani national, is believed to be the mastermind of the Amarnath terror attack which killed eight pilgrims, including six women.
Abu Ismail recently took over the reins as the chief of the Kashmir division of Lashkar-e-Taiba after LeT commander Abu Dujana was killed by security forces in a seven-hour gunfight in Pulwama district.
Jammu and Kashmir Police is likely to make a big announcement on the arrests at a press conference at 3.30 pm on Sunday.
On July 10, terrorists had first fired at two police posts before fleeing and then opening fire at the bus that was carrying a group of pilgrims returning from the Amarnath Yatra.
The bus was not officially registered with the Amarnath Shrine Board and was without police escort.
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti while condemning the attack had said that Kashmiris’ heads hang in shame.
The Amarnath terror attack is being described as the worst since 2000 when 30 Amarnath pilgrims were killed after terrorists attacked a base camp in Pahalgam.
The July 10 attack on Amarnath Yatra pilgrims took place despite specific intelligence input on June 25 that terrorists may target pilgrims.
