Indian police arrest four Pakistan-based militants in Kashmir; seize arms, ammunition

Published: May 9, 2018

STORY: Police in Indian Kashmir on Wednesday (May 09) arrested four militants, belonging to Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba, who had killed three civilians during an attack in Baramulla region last month.

Deputy Inspector General of Police, North Kashmir, Sunil Gupta said the arrested militants were responsible for the April 30 attack where three men were killed.

A huge cache of arms and ammunition were recovered from the militants. In addition, the vehicles that were used to ferry the militants were also seized.

India accuses Pakistan of training and arming militants and helping them infiltrate across thei Line of Control that divides Kashmir. Pakistan denies those allegations. The South Asian neighbours have fought two of their three wars since independence in 1947 over Muslim-majority Kashmir, which they both claim in full but rule in part.
