Security forces arrested three persons in Kashmir’s Baramulla district after busting a Hizbul Mujahideen module, police said on Sunday. The Hizbul module was actively involved in recruiting militants by luring young boys in the area to join the outfit. Around 10 boys were rescued in the operation carried out by the Baramulla police and other security forces.

Baramulla SSP, Imtiyaz Hussain Mir told news agency PTI that the module was being spearheaded by Hizbul Mujahideen commander Parvez Wani alias Mubashir, who is a resident of Gagloora Handwara in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district. He added that the module was planning to send many boys to Pakistan on valid visas for training in militant camps inside Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK).

The arrested persons — Ansarullah Tantaray, Abdul Rashid Bhat and Mehrajuddin Kak – were all from Baramulla district.  “One of the accused Abdul Rashid Bhat had visited Pakistan in the month of May this year and obtained training for undertaking terrorist activities in Khalid bin Waleed camp of HM located in PoK,” the SSP was quoted as saying by PTI. Mir also said that Bhat had got the visa from Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi “on the recommendation of a separatist organisation.”

“Arms, ammunition and Rs one lakh in Indian currency has been recovered from their possession,” said the SSP adding that the module had also been providing all logistic support to other militants of the outfit. A case under section 13 of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act has been registered in Police Station Pattan and investigation has been taken up.

        Govt is spending all national money only on buying bomb bandook arms, at the cost of more important things like education, research, employment generation and clean system. Almost stopped working caring and funding on these front which will hollow the nation. How many people u wld put in jail and kill? Why u not try to engage the youth in good environment, provide education and employment? Why not u try to infuse sensibility in environment? Where is the focus on inner strength building and quality human resources building. Bomb bullets can never give permanent solution. Bring sensibility. Send all youths in kashmir for education across India, give them job and better life and remOve article 370 and make others to live there. U need to show spine and grey material . Alag poore country ka paesa bam bandook tabahi ka saman khareedne me jhonk diya hai doosre departmenton ka paesa chura ke. Sometimes I feel Modi has joined hands with arm mafias and those plan war 2 generate mney frm war.

          lease do not go by propaganda. India is now surely stronger militarily than China and Rajnath Singh is a very good Home Minister. What is happening in reality is this. The Jews are tightly linked to Communist China and are doing great propaganda for Communist China and place adverti ts etc. with all manufactured data on China. Actually Israel is the country which supplies U.S. military technology to China. The Jews are telling us in a double game that China and Israel are the land of honey and India should be afraid of China to push us into the U.S. lap. Also China has the most favored-trade-status from the USA and no genuine enemy of the USA ever gets this. India is a land of 1.3 billion people with a good army and good weapons. She has a large nuclear nal and missiles ready we must thank Dr. Bhabha, Mrs. Indira Gandhi and Atalji for this. We have tactical nuclear warheads all over with large nuclear warheads. China is a Paper-Dog barks can not even take Taiwan. Reply A Aravind

            A country can never b stronger by buying arms..U baniyas never cm make a strong nation if mindset remains like this . This way saudi arabia wld be strongest nation...But fact is thatUS and China r strongest...Coz they do research and fund their science , not loose their money buying from others. And here ur govt has stopped funding to research and science, and using its money to buy arms. And this will destroy India and in fact such policy is making india weaker. Modi is stealing the scholarships of talented students to buy arms, useless rockets r being thrown in sky at the cost of educational funds of universities and research funds of other organizations. Modi jas destroyed almost the entire scientific, research and education system of India. Who knows tomorrow we find Modi being partner of arm mafias of this world who run their business by creating we hysteria and unrest. The same thing which srilanka and ltte faced nd price was paid by Rajiv Gandhi 4 his peace efforts.!

              Total non sense. Have you heard of Modi's "make in India" scheme which forces the US companies like Lockheed Martin to manufacture a good percent of US F-16 advanced jet fighters, Boeing's F-35, France's advanced jets, etc in India. This is just the beginning of slew of western countries interested in manufacturing in India because of educated work force. The US businesses are increasingly investing in India because India ranks the highest in the fast developing economy in South Asia. The BJP/Modi has been in power just for 3 years but already a viable economic map to recover the Indian economy for the congress parties failed socialistic/communistic policies.

                georgecruz...U r reciting like a parrot what u see in media. I ask you to just visit "any" national research ins ute. On 9th August Indian scientists are going to carry out first ever protest march against the apathy of govt. Our scientist s r not getting even 0.5 pc fund to do research. Modi is master of bhadana..His saying is different than what is happening. Research labs have been denied funds...I think u don't even read standard news papers. Even scholarships have been reduced and scientists have been asked to earn their ry on their own under some sutiyapa called dehradun declaration. Many scientists have quit India and believe me India science is passing through worst time. Make in India...Plz tell me what jas been made so far except big misleading ads in media? Could u plz tell us here how much fund has been given for research this year? Cld u plz tell me why our national labs have not even money to pay electricity bills? Do u ever bother to read tthat CSIR gone bankrupt?

                Patriots expect the Center to accord topmost priority to tackling the nuisance engineered by a tiny Muslim section of Jammu and Kashmir (under regular pay of US dollars via Pakistan), part and parcel of Akhand Bharath from time immemorial, many millenniums before the peaceful Islam was born.

                    Stop arresting culprit musselman terrorists, start killing . Killing them is only solution, arrests just increases burden on tax money and then the hijack plane, and take their terrorists back.
