trf: Jammu Police foil terror attack, arrest TRF terrorist | India News – Times of India


JAMMU: J&K Police foiled a major terror attack in Jammu on Sunday and arrested an operative of The Resistance Force (TRF) — an offshoot of the proscribed Lashkar-e-Taiba outfit — with a pistol and seven cartridges near Jammu railway station.
ADGP (Jammu Zone) Mukesh Singh identified the terrorist as Sheikh Sunain Yousuf — also known as Raja and Sultan — a resident of Gadapora village in south Kashmir’s Shopian district. “During questioning, Yousuf revealed that he was an active terrorist of TRF and had come to Jammu for a ‘specific task’, which had not yet been disclosed to him by his PoK-based handler,” he said.
“Yousuf added that his handler — Ahmed Khalid alias Hamza alias Haqparast, an active terrorist/handler of TRF — was also in touch with other terrorist handlers in Kashmir Valley through social networking apps such as Telegram and Signal,” ADGP Singh said.
Detailing Sunday’s anti-terror operation, the ADGP said, “Based on intelligence inputs about the movement of a Kashmir-based terrorist to Jammu to carry out a terror attack, Jammu Special Operations Group had set up checkpoints at different locations across the city.”
“During checking near Jammu railway station, a scooty driver dropped a pillion rider (Yousuf) around 50-60m away from the checkpoint and speeded away. The latter subsequently rushed towards a nearby bylane with a bag on his back. On noticing the suspicious movement, a police party chased the man and overpowered him at a distance after a hot pursuit,” ADGP Singh said.
“A search has been launched to trace two of Yousuf’s accomplices who aided him with reconnaissance support. We believe that links of Jammu-based terrorist handlers and overground workers will also come to the fore,” the ADGP said, adding that a case has been registered and an investigation is in progress.
Earlier this year, Jammu Police had foiled a terror plot with the arrest of four terror associates on February 14. A day before that, a joint team of Anantnag and Jammu Police had arrested a TRF terrorist involved in the killing of three BJP workers and a policeman in south Kashmir in 2020. On February 6, a self-styled commander of the proscribed Lashkar-e-Mustafa outfit was captured from Jammu’s Kunjwani area.
