Jammu, Apr 14: Police today claimed to have seized the car used in the Kishtwar attack in which a senior RSS functionary and his PSO were killed.

The vehicle was recovered from an area in Kishtwar district, police said. Police have also released a photograph of the owner of the vehicle, Zahid Hussain, who has been absconding since the attack, a police officer said.

"We have identified and tracked down a vehicle (used in the attack). We have identified its owner also," Inspector General of Police (IGP), Jammu Zone, M K Sinha was quoted as saying by PTI.

Hussain has reportedly joined Hizb-ul-Mujahideen recently but police did not confirm this.

According to sources, the car had a false number plate and had changed hands four times.

Senior RSS leader Chanderkant Sharma and his security guard were killed on April 09 when a militant opened fire inside a health centre in Kishtwar town.
