BREAKING: Amarnath terror attack J&K police arrested PDP MLA's driver

A Jammu and Kashmir policeman serving as driver of PDP MLA Aijaz Ahmad Mir has been arrested in connection with probe into the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims this week

Touseef Ahmad, a policeman from the security wing of Jammu and Kashmir Police and Wachhi legislator Aijaz Ahmad Mir’s driver, was detained for questioning two days ago. Wachhi is in Shopian district of south Kashmir.

Ahmad was formally placed under arrest on Friday as part of investigations into militancy-related violence in south Kashmir, police sources said.

Sources say Wani is being interrogated in connection with several militancy-related cases. Sources have further revealed that two others have been arrested for their alleged involvement in the attack.
Seven pilgrims, including five women, were killed and 19 others injured when terrorists opened fire at a bus carrying Amarnath yatris in Anantnag recently.

The sources said two other people, suspected to be overground workers for militants, have also been detained for questioning. It was not immediately clear whether Ahmad, who was posted as Mir’s driver seven months ago, has any direct link to the attack on Amarnath pilgrims at Anantnag on Monday that left seven yatris dead and 21 others injured.
