Jaish-e-Mohammad member arrested in Srinagar by Delhi Police

New Delhi: The Special Cell of Delhi Police arrested a man who is allegedly a member of the banned terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad, police stated on Tuesday. The arrest was made in Srinagar on Saturday evening.

The Special Cell received a tip off that Baba would be somewhere near south Srinagar on Saturday.

“He was arrested from Soura in downtown Srinagar. The accused will be produced before the Chief Judicial Magistrate in Srinagar and brought to Delhi on transit remand,” said DCP (Special Cell) Sanjeev Kumar Yadav.

The accused, Abdul Majeed Baba, a resident of Magfepora district of Sopore, was carrying a reward of Rs 2 lakh.
