Builders booked for conning lawyer | Vadodara News

SRINAGAR: A Congressional attorney accused of hauling terrorists in his car was arrested and booked under the Illegal Activities (Prevention) Act Thursday in Shopian, southern Kashmir, barely two weeks after the National Investigation Agency ( NIA) had taken up the youth wing of the PDP chief Waheed-ur-Rehman Para for alleged hobnobbing with the banned Hezbul mujahideen.
J&K police said Gowhar Ahmed Wani had fled for two days since Monday when the army’s 44 rashtriya rifles intercepted his car in Baba Khader Rampura Chowk in the Trenz area of ​​Shopian. The lawyer got out of his car as the army team chased the terrorists who jumped out of the vehicle in front of him, an officer said.
Wani, a resident of Imam Sahab, returned home on Wednesday and was immediately arrested for questioning. “He originally tried to play the victim. We officially arrested him after hours of questioning,” said a senior police officer.
Wani is the second Shopian political official to be arrested earlier this year for aiding terrorists, despite his party membership being questioned by Congress. GA Mir, head of J&K Congress, told TOI: “We don’t have anyone in Shopian by the name of Gowhar Wani in our ranks. The police are mistakenly linking a lawyer they have arrested to Congress. We vehemently deny that to have something to do with him. ”
In May, the NIA team, which had investigated the alleged connection of DSP Davinder Singh to terrorist outfits, caught a former Sarpanch from the district who was allegedly in the moonlight as a weapons supplier for terrorist outfits. The defendant Tariq Mir, who was elected to the Sarpanch with a ticket for the national conference, had contested the seat of the Wachi assembly in southern Kashmir in 2014 with a BJP ticket and lost.
Meanwhile, a youth identified as Irshad Ahmad Reshi was arrested Thursday in the Tral area of ​​Pulwama with ammunition, including eight detonators, and a walkie-talkie.
In Kulgams Nehama, suspected terrorists threw a hand grenade in a CRPF camp of the 18th Battalion. No deaths or injuries were reported.
