PDP MLA's driver arrested for Amarnath Yatra terror attack

PDP MLA's driver arrested for Amarnath Yatra terror attack

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

Several Kashmiri Pandits today gathered at the Jantar Mantar here to pay tribute to the victims of the recent terror attack on Amarnath yatris.

"It is related to a militancy case", he said. "But nothing is confirmed".

"We are investigating both the issues", Dinkar said. He was deputed as driver some seven months ago from the security wing of Jammu and Kashmir police.

Identified as Touseef Ahmad, the police took him for investigation in connection with the Amarnath Yatra terror attack case say sources.




On May 22, constable Syed Naveed Mushtaq disappeared with four police rifles from central Kashmir's Budgam district. While nothing conclusive has emerged about Touseef until now, this is not the first instance of a security personnel's name cropping up in a militancy-related case. Even as the authorities ordered a departmental probe into the incident, the Hizbul Mujahideen declared that Mushtaq has joined their ranks.

Touseef Amhad, the detained man, is a resident of Pulwama.

Claiming a major breakthrough in cracking the terror attack on a Yatra bus, the SIT has arrested a policeman and is also questioning a ruling PDP legislator in connection with the case.

The attack was carried out by terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and masterminded by Pakistani militant Ismail. The police did not specify reasons for the driver's arrest.
