According to reports, the police sketched a plan to apprehend the terrorists on a tip-off received that a terrorist named Adil Ahmad Bhat handed over a huge amount of cash, to over-ground workers named Rouf-ul-Islam Wani, Maqbool Wani, Shakeel Ahmed Wani and Musaib Aziz Gojree, for distribution of same among other terrorists and OGWs for raising the necessary support structure and also for luring youths to join terror ranks.

Hizbul Mujahideen is one of the most active terrorist organisation operating in Jammu and Kashmir. They are known to have a deep-rooted network of overground operatives recruited among locals who help them not only in cross LoC infiltration/ex-filtration activities but also provide them with fresh recruits, shelter and material help.

Jammu and Kashmir police along with the CRPF guided by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) have been untiringly working towards eliminating violence in the valley. In its effort to do so, last month the police had apprehended a top member of the organisation, Touseef Ahmad Gudna, alias Abu Bakar.

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 month before last the Jammu and Kashmir police also successfully nabbed 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.

Previously in August, Firoz Ahmed Lone, the former deputy jail superintendent of Srinagar Jail, where many dreaded terrorists are locked up, was arrested on charges of helping Hizbul Mujahideen for their recruitment activities.
