J&K Police Bust Nexus of Drone Delivery Recipients in Rajouri and Poonch

The Jammu and Kashmir Police have identified seven individuals in Rajouri district who have been receiving drone deliveries from Pakistan, with three arrests made so far. DGP R.R. Swain revealed this information during a media conference, stating that the individuals were receiving arms, ammunition, cash, and drugs from across the border.

Among the arrested individuals are Gulshan Naaz, Imtiyaz Ahmad, and Abid Shah, who were found to be in communication with handlers in Pakistan and forwarding the illegal deliveries to others. The police have collected electronic and digital evidence to support these claims and are still working on identifying more individuals involved in the network.

DGP Swain identified the mastermind behind this operation as Mohd Qasim alias Salman alias Suleman, a designated terrorist associated with LeT. Qasim has been involved in planning several terror-related incidents in the region, including the blast in Katra and Narwal. A reward of Rs 10 lakh has been announced for information leading to his arrest.

Qasim has been using social media and messaging applications to recruit vulnerable youth into joining terrorist activities. While some have resisted his propaganda, others have fallen into his trap, highlighting the continued threat posed by individuals like Qasim. The police are urging the public to come forward with any information that could help in apprehending him.
