The arrested person has been identified as Mohammad Ashraf Mir, son of Mohammad Shafi Mir, a resident of Laridoora Chandoosa, who was working as a “terrorist associate of the LeT”, he said.

The spokesman said Mir is a “surrendered terrorist”. A case under the Arms Act and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act was registered and investigation taken up, he said.
