The Jammu and Kashmir Police has arrested two girls from Central Kashmir’s Budgam district in connection with a militant attack on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader last week which had left one police cop dead.

In the attack, the cop’s rifle was also taken away by militants although police claimed the recovery of the said rifle from slain militants in Pulwama a day after the attack.

Quoting unnamed sources, KDC reported that two girls were arrested by Police Station Nowgam in connection with a case FIR number 27/2021 under sections 307, 302, 392 of IPC and 7/27 of Arms Act, which was registered in connection with the attack on BJP leader Anwar Khan last week.

They identified the detained duo as Tabasum Maqbool, 22, daughter of Mohd Maqbool, and Anjum Younis, 23, daughter of Mohd Younis Bhat — both residents of Kanihama, Budgam.

Sources added that one among the arrested girls is a nursing student and is pursuing her studies in Chadoora area of Budgam.

Meanwhile, SSP Srinagar did not respond to repeated calls and texts asking for a comment. (KDC)
