Jammu, Dec 17: A Tehreek-e-Hurriyat (TeH) leader was Monday arrested in Doda district for his alleged links with militants, the police said.

Noor Mohammad alias Fayaz Malik of Fiqsoo-Thatri village of Doda was an alleged over-ground worker (OGW) of militants, a senior police officer said.

"Mohammad was wanted in a militancy-related case... The arrested accused is a self-styled leader of TeH, Doda and has previously remained an associate of Geelani," the officer said.

Terming the arrest as a "major breakthrough", the officer said Mohammad was active in “radicalising the youth of the valley and encourage them to join militancy”.

He also had close links with Qamar-ul-Zaan, a militant who was recently arrested in Uttar Pradesh besides a local active militant Usama-bin-Javed, who hails from Dachhan area of Kishtwar, the officer said.

"Reportedly the arrested OGW is running a school at Thathri in Doda," he said further.
