Jammu and Kashmir Police deactivated a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) overground worker (OGW) module and detained two people in Sopore on Friday.

At Gousiabad Chowk Chinkipora, which is under the control of the Sopore police station, a joint naka (checkpoint) was built in conjunction with the Army and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF). Two people were seen moving suspiciously while being checked as they travelled from Dangerpora to Chinkipora. When ordered to halt, they attempted to leave the area. Then, security personnel captured the pair.

Two grenades were found by police in their hands. Shakir Akber Gojree, a Bandipora resident, and Mohsin Wani, a Baramulla resident, were named as the arrested individuals.

The apprehended individuals, according to the police, are over ground workers (OGWs) of the outlawed group LeT and were constantly looking for a chance to assault security officers and civilians.

As a result, a case has been opened at the Sopore police station in accordance with the applicable legal provisions.

One Chinese weapon, one pistol magazine, seven live pistol rounds, 25 AK-47 rounds, and explosive material were also found over the course of the inquiry after the jailed pair divulged the identities of further OGW accomplices.

The names of two other OGWs, according to the police, are Himayun Shariq of Sopore and Faizan Ashraf Wani of Nadihal Rafiabad.
