10 overground workers of Jaish-e-Muhammad arrested in Kashmir

Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir police has arrested 10 overground workers (OGWs) of the Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM). The militants were arrested during raids in the south and central Kashmir areas.

‘These raids were focused on the network of JeM. Ten persons, who were part of the OGW modules and taking instructions from JeM commanders, have been arrested. The module whose members were organised into sub-modules, in the form of verticals, so that in the event of detection of one member the bigger network does not get compromised, have been painstakingly discovered through discreet surveillance in which corroborative intelligence capable of being converted into admissible evidence in court was used to ascertain and confirm the OGW membership of these individuals’, said Jammu and Kashmir police.
