JAMMU, May 12: Army on Sunday apprehended a youth, moving outside Sunjwan military station under suspicious circumstances. He was arrested after he failed to prove his identity
The youth was confronted by the army outside the main gate of Sunjuwan military station, a sprawling camp in the outskirts of the city which was targeted by a three-member suicide squad of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorists in February last year.
“A suspicious movement by a young man was noticed in close vicinity of Sunjuwan Military Station Army Gate around 1310 hours on Saturday. The movement of young man loitering in close vicinity of Army Gate was closely monitored by the alert army personnel on duty,” said army spokesperson.
Pointing out that the accused failed to prove his identity after army personnel at Military Station's Gate No. 2 asked for it, a defence ministry spokesperson Lt Colonel Devender Anand said that an Adhaar card and a voter card found in his possession mentioned his name differently. In the Adhaar card, his name was mentioned as Ark Ahmed and in the voter ID, it was Arik Wani of Ramban district. He claimed to have reached Jammu on Saturday and he asked to call his “accomplice” Mukesh Kumar who was working at a local restaurant in Channi Himmat, the spokesperson added.
“Following the drills and procedures, he said the army personnel asked the individual to prove his identity. The individual failed to prove his identity. Subsequently, he was handed over to local police at the Chhanni Himmat police station for investigation and further necessary action,” the spokesperson said.
Meanwhile, Tejinder Singh, SSP Jammu, said that the police were verifying the antecedents of the apprehended youth. Later youth’s accomplice too was detained.
The Sunjwan military station has been subject to militant attacks from time to time. Last time in February 2018, three Jaish-e-Mohammad militants had stormed into the military station killing six soldiers and a civilian before getting killed by troops. In 2003 also, two fidayeen had attacked the military station killing nearly some soldiers.
