Three, including a police officer and two Hizbul Mujahideen militants, were caught at a police checkpoint in south Kashmir’s Kulgam on Saturday. The police followed up the arrests with raids in the Valley where at least two rifles and ammunition were recovered.

A police official said a DSP-rank officer and two Hizb militants, including cop-turned-militant commander Syed Naveed Mushtaq alias Naveed Babu, and his close associate Asif were spotted in a car near Wanpoh on the Srinagar-Jammu highway in Kulgam district in the afternoon. They were held during a random checking of vehicles on the highway.


“As far as my knowledge is concerned, nothing of this sort has happened,” SSP, Kulgam, Gurinderpal Singh said.

A resident of Shopian’s Nazneenpora, he joined the J&K police in 2012 as a constable. He decamped with four rifles from the guard room of the FCI facility in Budgam’s Chandpora and joined the Hizb in 2017. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) named him behind a weapon snatching incident from a legislator’s house in Srinagar on September 28, 2018.
