NIA arrests two Jaish militants

New Delhi: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrested two militants belonging to Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) on Thursday.

The two militants, Tanveer alias Tanveer Ahmad Ganie (29) and Bilal Mir alias Bilal Ahmad Mir (23), were detained under the Public Safety Act and put in the Kot Bhalwal jail in Jammu, a statement issued by the NIA said.

They were produced before a special court that remanded them to a seven-day custody of the NIA.

The case against the duo pertained to a criminal conspiracy hatched by the top JeM leadership to strengthen the banned outfit’s base in India by recruiting persons for carrying out acts of terrorism, the agency said.

“An investigation has disclosed that earlier arrested accused Sajjad Ahmad was in regular contact with these accused over WhatsApp during the relevant period,” it added.

The case was registered by the NIA on the basis of information received initially by the Centre regarding a criminal conspiracy involving certain people for strengthening the JeM’s base in India, raising funds for militant acts, hatching plans for carrying out militant acts, organising militant training camps, recruiting persons for carrying out terror attacks and harbouring the cadre of the JeM.
