A week after foiling terrorists' attempt to repeat a Pulwama in Jammu by neutralizing two foreigners in the Sunjwan area on the outskirts of Jammu city, cops questioned a girl who is believed to be "very close" to the absconding Over Ground Worker (OGW) who provided logistic support in executing a terror attack.
Although senior officers are tightlipped over the involvement of a girl in the incident, sources said that investigating team has questioned a female who is the girlfriend of one Asif Ahmad Sheikh- allegedly involved in the terror conspiracy, and is absconding.
"A non-local girl, who lives in the Bhathindi area of Jammu city, was in touch with Asif for a long," sources said and added that cops have started questioning the girl after getting call details of her phone.
The girl, sources said, was in touch with Asif on the day of the terror attack on April 22. Sources said that Asif, a native of Kashmir Valley, frequently visits the girl's residence in the Bhathindi area. "Aim of questioning the girl is to ascertain whereabouts of Asif," sources said.
