Hizbul Mujahideen’s ‘hardcore motivator’ Touseef Ahmad Gudna arrested in Jammu and Kashmir

A top member of the Kashmiri separatist militant organisation, Hizbul Mujahideen, which is considered to be one of the largest terrorist group in Kashmir and has been instrumental in conditioning young men and women to join the outfit and revive terror activity in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kishtwar district, has been arrested, reports Deccan Chronicle.

Touseef Ahmad Gudna, alias Abu Bakar, was arrested on a tip-off received by the Jammu and Kashmir police on Tuesday, said a police spokesman, and came precisely two months after the police had found out about a fraction of the terror outfit planning to carry out grenade attacks and revive terror activity in the district.

Gudna’s name emerged while the police interrogated two Hizbul members who were arrested on 1st July. The Jammu and Kashmir police are considering this arrest as a mighty punch to the organisation as there is a “likelihood of a decrease in terrorist activities and reduction in the number of youth indulging in anti-national activities”, said the police spokesman.

Gudna, a close associate of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Mohammad Amin alias Jehangir, was also involved in a terror case registered in police station Parimpora in Srinagar last year.

The Jammu and Kashmir police, along with the help of CRPF, guided by the National Investigation Agency (NIA), in its constant effort to curb violence in the valley, had last month also arrested Shakeel, son of Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin. Last year in October, the NIA had arrested his other son, Syed Shahid Yusuf, who was questioned in 2011 terror funding case. While Syed Shahid Yusuf was a Jammu and Kashmir government employee, Shakeel works as a senior lab technician at Sher-I-Kashmir Institute of Medical Studies.

Similarly, in the month of March, in a major crackdown which incapacitated the militant organisation considerably, the Jammu and Kashmir Police had caught an over ground worker (OGW) of the terrorist outfit Hizbul Mujahideen. As per reports a huge cache of incriminating material had also been recovered from his possession.
