2 JeM terrorists, 4 of their associates held in J&K
[OneIndia] Two newly recruited bully boyz and four terrorist associates of Jaish-e-Mohammad
...literally Army of Mohammad, a Pak-based Deobandi terror group founded by Maulana Masood Azhar in 2000, after he split with the Harkat-ul-Mujaheddin. In 2002 the government of Pervez Musharraf banned the group, which changed its name to Khaddam ul-Islam and continued doing what it had been doing before without missing a beat...
(JeM) and its offshoot Lashkar-e-Mustafa (LeM) were arrested in Jammu and Kashmir
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....
on Saturday, police said.

Acting on specific inputs regarding terrorist attacks being planned in Anantnag and Bijbehara towns by the LeM, the police along with the Army established special checking points at multiple locations and conducted intensive checking, a police spokesperson said.

At one of the checkpoints at Donipora in Bijbehera, officers intercepted a car with two persons onboard. The two tried to flee but were apprehended tactfully by the alert forces, he said.
For a given value of tactful that possibly involved bamboo staves connecting hardly with their persons...
"They have been identified as Imran Ahmed Hajam, a resident of Nathpora Khanabal, and Irfan Ahmed Ahanger, a resident of Nandpora Khanabal. Both had recently joined terrorist ranks and were affiliated with proscribed terror outfit LeM/JeM," the spokesperson said.
It is the job of Red Shirts and cannon fodder to get caught. This is understood. After all, it is only by repeatedly not getting caught that one graduates to an actual number in the organization, on the path to emir with two henchmen on the operations side or Number 4 with a colour blind trainee guaranteed to confuse the red and green wires for those on the technical path.
Incriminating material, arms and ammunition including two pistols, three magazines and 116 rounds were recovered from their possession, he said.
Alternately, a stint in prison, being tutored by more advanced peers, has been known to advance the survivor’s career by several steps up the ladder.
The spokesperson said during the questioning, the arrested persons revealed that the LeM was recently floated to give an impression that terrorism in Kashmir is home-grown and not sponsored by Pakistain.
”Such a clever idea, Mr. General Effendi, sir! Those stupid hinjoos in IOK will never catch on that it’s a ruse — and we have the perfect patsy ready to name himself the Number 1!”
"They further revealed that they are close associates of Hidayat Malik alias Hasnain, a resident of Sharafpora Shopian and the self-styled chief of LeM;
...he looks the perfect villain: black cape and shiny top hat, twirly mustaches, and laughs menacingly at every opportunity. Oh, and an IQ of 15...
Umer alias Wahid Khan, a resident of Shopian; and Aftab alias Ali Bhai, a resident of Dachipora.
...ordinary henchmen (3rd class), those two, to set the proper tone...
"They said they were conducting recce of the area to plant an IED in order to target security forces and the police," he said.
...any number of Xs, but only one will be the final Spot...
During the course of investigation, four terrorist associates of JeM were arrested from different locations, the spokesperson said.
It’s India. They haven't yet mastered vanishing as if they’d never been there at all. In Bangladesh the Rapid Action Battalions have acted to speed the evolution of even common miscreants.
They have been identified as Bilal Ahmed Kumar, Tawfeeq Ahmed Lawey, Muzamil Ahmed Wani and Aadil Ahmed Rather.
All three-namers, which in Bangladesh would make them solidly middle class. But as this is India, it probably just means their mothers had ideas above their station.
Incriminating material, ammunition including two grenades, 30 AK-47 rounds and 1 kg of kaboom were recovered from their possession, he said.
Not a single round of bullet, shined lovingly by the newest police recruit and kept in its velvet case in the evidence lockup between being sent to various Spots to be found by gruff Sgt. Iqbal and his merry men, no shutter gun, no crossfire deaths, but actual weapons that can be bought on the illegal black market? In this, at least, the Indians are more sophisticated.
