SRINAGAR: Two overground workers (OGWs), including a law student, were arrested on Saturday for allegedly designing and pasting provocative posters of the proscribed Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) outfit in Hajin area of north Kashmir’s Bandipora district. Police have recovered two laptops and other incriminating evidence from the duo, SSP Bandipora Rahul Malik said.
The arrests were made after police, acting on intelligence inputs, raided several places in Hajin and busted the OGW module. The accused were identified as Irfan Ahmad Bhat of Hajin’s Syed Mohalla and Asif Ahmad Parray of Hajin’s Parray Mohalla. Irfan is an LLB student while Asif is a shopkeeper by profession and sells SIM cards, SSP Malik said.
The two used to design the posters and paste them around in Hajin in a bid to incite commoners against police and the government. “We also seized two laptops on which the accused created those posters and circulated them to disrupt peace in the area,” the SSP said.
Other incriminating evidence such as fake election cards, fake driving licenses, fake registration certificates and SIM cards were also recovered from their possession. Hajin Police have booked the accused under IPC Section 506 (criminal intimidation). An investigation is underway.
