JAMMU: A former Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist, who had been on the run for 19 years, was arrested by Kishtwar Police on Saturday. Dulla Jameel, a resident of Arnas in J&K’s Reasi district, was wanted in a terrorism-related case registered in 2002 at Chatroo police station.

“Based on a tip-off, a police team raided various suspected locations and arrested the accused, who was putting up at Kundwar village in Kishtwar’s Chatroo area,” a police spokesperson said. The accused was produced in a local court, which sent him to judicial custody.

On September 17, J&K Police had arrested an ex-terrorist, Abdul Gani, from Kishtwar’s Marwah. Gani had been evading arrest for the past 20 years. On September 15, Nazir Ahmad of Budhar-Bonjwah, also an ex-terrorist, was arrested after a long search of 12 years.

On July 6, Kishtwar Police arrested Naeem Ahmed, a resident of Kishtwar’s Tattani, who was wanted in a case registered 13 years ago.
