Three JeM terrorists arrested in India, weapons seized

Three suspected terrorists belonging to the Pakistan based Jaish-e-Mohammed militant organization were intercepted by the police at 8 am this morning on the Jammu-Pathankot highway, and were arrested after the police recovered a huge load of arms and ammunition hidden among groceries.

The truck was on its way to Kashmir from the Bamyal area of Punjab when the police stopped the vehicle between Kathua and Lakhanpur at the Punjab-Jammu border. Three AK-56 assault rifles, two AK-47s, and Rs. 4.5 lakh were recovered from the truck. "Three people have been arrested, interrogation is underway, the three are affiliated to Jaish-e-Mohammad," Kathua's SSP reportedly said.

"Pakistan sponsored terror continues to be up to mischief. According to SSP Kathua (Jammu & Kashmir), a truck carrying arms and ammunition has been recovered in Kathua, more details are awaited," Union Minister Jitendra Singh posted.
