Lashkar’s TRF module hatched a conspiracy
The Jammu and Kashmir Police had said that the arrested terrorist associates have been identified as Tariq Ahmed Dar, Mohammad Shafi Dar, Mudasir Hasan Lone and Bilal Ah Dar. However, one of the terrorist associates involved in the murder, Imtiaz Ah Dar, is absconding, who has reportedly joined the terrorist ranks. During the investigation, it also emerged that the murder was committed at the behest and instructions of Lashkar (TRF) handler Lala Umar, a resident of Pakistan. The Lashkar (TRF) module of Shahgund in Hajin area had conspired to carry out the nefarious plan.
