The state’s Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) on Tuesday arrested a youth from Kashmir in Daman for suspected terror activities.

The youth,identified as Wasim,has reportedly been staying in Daman for about a month in a rented tenement.

ATS sources claimed they had been keeping a watch on him after intelligence inputs that some suspicious elements were gathering in Daman.

“He was using mobile phones with numbers of two different states and had also arranged for a local number from south Gujarat. He often had visitors from Kashmir and other northern states. In each meeting,there were some suspicious transactions,” a source in ATS said.

Though no arms have been recovered from him,sources in ATS claimed to have seized several documents containing general information on Gujarat and maps of government buildings in the state from him.
