UP youth arrested for terror strikes in Jammu and Kashmir

J&K police claim breakthrough with arrest of alleged LeT India Tv

The Jammu and Kashmir Police arrested a UP resident man, allegedly involved with the terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba.

In an emailed statement to The Kashmir Monitor, the Chief LeT said: "Sandeep Kumar, who belongs to Uttar Pradesh, has no link whatsoever with Lashkar-e-Taiba".

According to police, Sandeep Kumar Sharma, son of Ram Kumar Sharma of Muzaffarnagar in UP, was apprehended after he was found in the same house at Dialgam where Bashir Lashkari and two other militants were killed.

"Sandeep and Muneeb were also involved in at least four ATM robberies in south Kashmir areas during which more than 10 million rupees were looted", a senior police said, wishing anonymity. "Sandeep Kumar was a criminal, but after he came in touch with Lashkar terrorists, he started to loot banks, ATMs for them", Khan said.

The killing of the commander was a major success for the security forces in their anti-militancy campaign as Lashkari had masterminded and carried out the gruesome killing of six policemen, including an officer, in Achabal area last month.

Khan said Sharma had come to Kashmir from Patiala in January this year along with some associates with the motive of carrying out "criminal activities" and he was held in a robbery case in March. Sandeep's alleged involvement in the activities of the terror group led to his arrest by the J&K police. To the locals, he (Sandeep) used the name Adil.




Consequently, he joined Bashir Lashker of LET and worked as key aid.

"Sharma was acting as Over Ground worker for LeT". During the encounter, he was rescued alongwith other members of the family by the Police. It was here that they met hardcore LeT terrorist Shakoor Ahmad, the IGP disclosed.

"At present investigation is in progress and the subject has been arrested".

The police official said that the terrorists operating in the valley utilized the services of Sandeep for looting ATMs and the booty was shared among them all.

ANI further added that Sharma also concealed weapons looted from police guards in a vehicle and shifted them to different locations on the directions of LeT.
