Two LeT militants arrested in Kashmir

Two Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba militants have been arrested in Jammu and Kashmir, army officials said on Thursday.

Srinagar, May 10 : Two Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba militants have been arrested in Jammu and Kashmir, army officials said on Thursday.

Officials said the militants, who received intensive training in Pakistan, were part of a seven-member group, which was trying to infiltrate to the Indian side.

When the army tried to stop them, an encounter took place in which five of them were killed and two militants, identified as Mohammad Yasin and Akhtar al-Salaam, were arrested on Wednesday.

Ranjeet Singh, a senior officer of the Indian Army, said militants' forcefully recruited Yasin and Akhtar from Lahore, taking advantage of their economic conditions.

"They were forcefully recruited by militant organisations in Pakistan. They belong to very poor families and are almost illiterate. They are from Lahore and are 18 and 21 years old respectively. Poverty and unemployment are the main reason they have been picked up by terror organisations. They were given training at Muzaffarabad and Aksa for three months," he said.

Singh added that a huge quantity of arms and ammunition, including AK-47 rifles and magazines, were recovered from their possession.
