Jammu and Kashmir (The Stellar News) Saksham Kalia: In the first, Jammu and Kashmir Police have recovered a perfume Improvised explosive device (IED) from a Lashkar-e-Tahiba terrorist who was involved in the twin blasts that took place in Narwal on January 21.
The Police arrested a terrorist identified as Arif who was in contract with the Pakistani handles for three years.
As many as nine people were injured in the twin blasts that occurred in Narwal last month in a gap of 20 minutes. The police said that the terrorists intended to kill as many people as possible.
The second IED, according to the police, could have caused bigger damage, which the terrorists intended, had the police not followed the SPs.
Jammu and Kashmir DGP Dilbag Singh said, “Two bombs were planted on January 20. Two blasts occurred on January 21 at a gap of 20 minutes to kill as many people as possible. 9 people were injured after the first IED blast. The damage that was intended could be averted because of the SOPs followed by the police. Otherwise, the damage could have been bigger because the first IED was small but the second IED was way bigger than the first. Police have arrested one terrorist Arif, who was in contact with Pakistan handles for 3 years.”
Stating that this is the first such IED recovered by the police, the DGP explained that the IED would blast if an attempt is made to press or open it.
He added that, “This is the first time we have recovered a perfume IED. We have not recovered any perfume IED before. The IED will blast if anyone tries to press or open it. Our special team will handle that IED.”
