Srigar, June 12: The Army and police on Monday busted a Hizbul Mujahideen module in Jammu and Kashmir’s Handwara district, arresting two militants and two supporters.

A police spokesman said here that police and Rashtriya Rifles caught Mehrajudin and Obaid Shafi, both residents of Awantipora in Pulwama district, at Chogal while moving in suspicious circumstances. The two were asked to stop but they tried to escape, the spokesman said. When they were caught, arms and ammunition were recovered from them. “They said they came to Handwara to get ammunition.” “Prelimiry investigations reveal these militants were members of a militant module who would recruit youths for militancy by radicalizing them over social media and coordite their training and supply of arms and ammunition,” the spokesman said.
