During the course of the investigation, it was proved beyond doubt that these houses were used by active terrorists in conspiring, planning, and executing terror acts in the Srinagar district.

The house owners willfully provided shelter and harboured the terrorists in these houses, they also provided logistics needed for such a stay, police said.

Srinagar Police once again requested the general public not to harbour or provide shelter or extend logistics to terrorist or terror associates in their houses, failing which strict legal action will be taken against anyone doing so.
