Earlier on August 21, Jammu and Kashmir Police arrested two LeT terrorists in Budgam who were involved in a grenade attack that injured a civilian on August 15.
According to the police, some terrorists had hurled a grenade in the Gopalpora Chadoora area of the Budgam district in Kashmir on August 15. In the attack, a civilian named Karan Kumar was injured.
Karan was then rushed to the Srinagar Hospital for treatment and his condition there was reportedly under control and presently stable.
Meanwhile, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on August 18 conducted searches at eight locations in Jammu and Kashmir in the case related to the interception of a drone used for the delivery of consignments of arms and ammunition as well as explosives by a key module of The Resistance Front (TRF), an offshoot of Lashkar-e-Taiba, which was working at the behest of Pakistani handlers.
The locations raided by the counter-terrorism agency were in Srinagar, Jammu, Kathua, Samba, and Doda districts of Jammu and Kashmir.
NIA said that the TRF operatives were in constant touch with Pakistani handlers of LeT and were receiving consignments of arms and ammunition as well as explosives and other terrorist hardware via drones in Indian territory near the International Border in the Samba Sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
"These weapon consignments were being further supplied to TRF terrorists in Kashmir for the execution of terrorist attacks on minorities, migrants and security forces," NIA added.
The case was initially registered at Rajbagh police station in the Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir and the NIA registered the case on July 30.
The NIA claimed to have seized various incriminating material and digital devices as well as documents during these searches.
