This arrest might come as a big blow to the terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen, who recently suffered a major setback as one of its top member, Touseef Ahmad Gudna, alias Abu Bakar, was reportedly arrested at the beginning of September this 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 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.

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.
