He was arrested by the central investigation agency from Amphalla jail here on Tuesday following disclosures by an arrested militant, Ishaq Palla.
"Palla said that Lone, then posted in Srinagar Central Jail, was part of the conspiracy to motivate the youth to cross over to Pakistan for obtaining training in handling firearms.
"Palla, belonging to Shopian district has already been taken on a 10-day remand by the NIA," the sources said.
