Amarnath terror attack: Police arrest PDP MLA's driver

Jammu and Kashmir police has constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the militant attack.

A policeman serving as a PDP MLA's driver has been arrested in connection with investigations into the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims this week, police sources said today.

Tauseef Ahmad is a resident of Chokura Pulwama. He has been detained in a terrorism related case.


Confirming the developments, Superintendent of Police (SP) Shopian, Ambarkar Shriram Dinkar, said "Touseef was cooperating with the investigators".

Touseef Ahmad, a policeman from the security wing of Jammu and Kashmir Police and Wachhi legislator Aijaz Ahmad Mir's driver, was detained for questioning two days ago. Seven people died and 19 were injured when terrorists opened fire at a bus ferrying Amarnath Yatra pilgrims about 50 km from Pahalgam.

Lt Gen JS Sandhu, GoC 15 Corps said, 'Amarnath yatra attack has been one reversal, but we will continue our operations and will continue targeting terrorists'. "After cross checking this fact from several quarters, he was picked by the SIT sleuths who are grilling him at length", said the police official adding that Touseef has cracked and was cooperating with the investigating agency and has started spilling vital clues.
