The Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) has arrested one terror suspect, Salman Khurshid from the Ramban area of Jammu in a joint operation with the Jammu and Kashmir Police force. The arrest was made on the Sunday evening.
The Uttar Pradesh ATS took Salman Khurshid into custody and he would be brought to the state on a transit remand for interrogation. According to ATS sources, during an initial interrogation, it has been found that Salman Khurshid, 25, was in contact with Inamul Haq through an app.
Inamul Haq had been arrested by the UP ATS on June 18 from Bareilly for inciting youth to join Jihad and pick arms for terrorist organisations. The ATS will now confront both simultaneously to know about other youth recruited by them so far.
Inamul and Salman Khurshid were connected on Telegram and they had a group on the app. Inamul has so far radicalised several youths across the country.
