The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Wednesday busted an Over Ground Workers (OGW) network of the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) in Handwara.
The OGW network, which was operating since April 2015, was involved in various subversive activities and determined to target political workers, security force installations and police establishments.
These operators were providing logistic support to the JeM militants and were close associates of a top commander of JeM.
Nabi Lone, Umer Mushtaq and Ishfaq Ahmad Parray, who were active in various parts of Handwara, have been arrested.
The police claim the trio was working on pulling of a major incident in Handwara and said that a major threat had been averted with the busting of this module.
