The Jammu & Kashmir Police on Wednesday reportedly busted a terror module of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) with the arrest of three alleged militants of the outfit in Handwara.
"The three terrorists of JeM arrested were in touch with Pakistani handlers," ANI quoted Handwara Superintendent of Police Ghulam Jeelani as saying.
The arrests were made a little more than a month after six militants, suspected to be JeM operatives, attacked an Indian Air Force base in Pathankot, Punjab. At least seven security personnel died in the attack. All the militants were also killed in the three-day-long stand-off.
Pakistan made several arrests after India asked it to take action against the militant organisation and find the real culprits behind the attack on 2 January.
Meanwhile, an investigation committee set up by Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is looking into the evidence provided by India on the Pathankot attack. The evidence reportedly suggests the Pathankot attackers entered India from Pakistan.
