Nearly three weeks after Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist Mohammad Naved became the first Pakistani terrorist to be captured alive since 26/11 Mumbai attacker Ajmal Kasab, security forces captured Sajjad Ahmed, 22, after an overnight operation in Baramulla, Jammu and Kashmir.
Army officials said while Ahmed had been nabbed, four terrorists with him were killed and one army jawan was injured in the encounter in Rafiabad area, close to the Line of Control.
Based on intelligence about the presence of a group of terrorists in the area on Wednesday, security forces had launched a massive operation in north Kashmir, ranging from Uri sector near the LoC to Panzalla in Rafiabad area.
The state police's Special Operation Group and the army's 46RR along with the additional reinforcement of 17 JAK Rifles, 4 PARA and 35RR had intercepted the terrorists.
Meanwhile, in a joint effort by Delta Force troops based at Dul and Kishtwar police, a terrorist hideout was unearthed in Nai Gad Nala near Shalog village in Kishtwar, leading to the recovery of a huge cache of arms and ammunition.
On August 5, LeT terrorist Naved had been nabbed by some civilians after he and his associate attacked a BSF convoy in Chenani area of Udhampur district. His associate was killed in the encounter with BSF personnel.
