Srinagar Police busted a grenade-throwing module and have arrested four Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists, and seized four hand grenades from them on Wednesday. The Srinagar police in an official statement said, "During a Naka checking at Bemina Chowk, one over ground worker (OGW) named Zubair Sheikh was intercepted and on his search, one hand grenade was recovered from his possession."

"The accused was arrested on the spot and a case under relevant Sections of Indian Arms Act and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Amendment Act (UAPA) was registered at Bemina police station and an investigation was taken up," the statement added. The statement further added that the accused was put to sustained examination and during questioning, he revealed that he had received this grenade from another OGW namely Shamim Ahmed Chilloo.

Later raids were conducted on various locations and three OGWs were also arrested and on their instances, three more hand grenades were also recovered," the statement added.
