Security forces arrest LeT militant in Srinagar

Srinagar, Apr 3: A Lashker-Toiba militant, who was allegedly the main accused in looting of four rifles from the resident of former Congress minister Muzaffar Parray in Srinagar in December 2018, was arrested from a private hospital here on Wednesday.
Official sources said that following specific information about presence of a militant at a private hospital in Rajbagh, a security force team was rushed to the area and the ultra, identified as Danish Haneef Wani, a resident of Budshah Nagar, Natipora, was arrested.
“The militant was reportedly undergoing treatment at the hospital for injuries which he had incurred while escaping an encounter with security forces in south Kashmir district of Pulwama,” they said.
They said that Danish was the main accused in the rifle looting case. Four rifles were discovered to be missing from the residence of Parray in Srinagar’s Jawahar Nagar on December 30.
Danish had gone missing from his home on the same day the rifles were looted. Meanwhile, over a month after his disappearance, the picture of the 22-year-old youth brandishing an AK47 rifle went viral on social media, including Facebook.
