The Jammu and Kashmir Police on January 12 said they are investigating the role of a gallantry award-winning senior police officer, Davinder Singh, who was ferrying two Hizbul Mujahideen militants, including wanted ‘commander’ Syed Naveed Mushtaq alias Babu, in a civilian car on January 11.
They are suspected to have been headed to Delhi and may have been targeting the Republic Day function in the national capital.
“Based on an intelligence input provided by the Shopian police, two terrorists and one police officer were held during a search of a civilian car on the Srinagar-Jammu Highway on Saturday. The police officer will be treated as a terrorist. The ongoing operation started on Saturday (January 11). Multiple agencies are questioning them,” Inspector-General of Police, Kashmir, Vijay Kumar said.
