SRINAGAR: In a joint operation, the Kupwara Police, along with the Army, have arrested an ex-militant turned overground worker (OGW) from the Kralpora area of the district, along with a grenade.

Acting on specific intelligence generated by the Kupwara Police, a joint checkpoint was established at Main Market Karlpora by the Kupwara Police and Army Camp Panzgam. During the checkpoint inspection, the OGW, who was moving in suspicious circumstances, trying to evade the presence of checkpoint personnel, was apprehended. One grenade was recovered from his possession.

The OGW was later identified as Rafiq Ahmad Khan, son of Habib Ullah Khan, a resident of Waterkhani Drugmulla Kupwara. Rafiq is a surrendered Pakistan-trained terrorist who is now working as an OGW for the terrorist outfit HM. During preliminary investigations, he revealed that he received the grenade from the Chogul area of Handwara and was supposed to deliver it to someone in the Kralpora area on the instructions of his Pakistan-based HM handler to be thrown at security forces. A case under the relevant provisions of the UA(P) Act has been registered at Police Station Kralpora, and investigations have been taken up.
