Father-son duo arrested in Pulwama nocturnal raid

Pulwama, Jun 20: Government Forces arrested father-son duo in a nocturnal raid in Wagam Chinar Bagh area of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
Reports said that a joint party of army and Special Operations Group raided the house of Bashir Ahmed and arrested him along with his son Abrar Bashir.
The raid and subsequent arrests sparked nocturnal protest in the area.
Pertinently, last month on 11 May, the house of Bashir Ahmed was blasted by Government Forces after it was occupied by militants. The gunfight had resulted in the death of a CRPF trooper while militants had managed to escape from the house.
A police official while confirming the arrest of father-son duo said that they have been detained for questioning. (CNS)
