The Indian Army and Jammu and Kashmir Police in a joint operation on Friday arrested two militants involved in the attack on Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) in Banihal Wednesday.
The militants were identified as Gajnafar and Arif, who had been recruited in the Kashmir valley to provoke terror in the Chenab valley region.
The duo, along with another militant Aquib Wahid, was involved in the Wednesday attack that left one SSB man dead and another critically injured.
The arrest is a significant blow to the terror designs of anti-national elements in promoting and supporting terrorism in otherwise peaceful Chenab Valley. Search of the area and further investigations are under progress.
