The vehicle was recovered from an area in Kishtwar district, he said. Police have released a photograph of the owner of the vehicle, Zahid Hussain, who had been absconding since the attack, the officer said.
Hussain has reportedly joined terror outfit Hizb-ul-Mujahideen recently but police did not confirm this.
According to sources, the car had a false number plate and had changed hands four times.
