REASI, Nov 8: A surrendered militant, who had been absconding for past about a decade, was today arrested by police in Chillad area of Arnas in this district.
SSP Reasi Tahir Sajjad Bhat told the Excelsior that Mohammad Masook, 41, son of Mohammad Ramzan R/o Chillad had surrendered in 2007 after giving up the path of militancy. However, he didn’t appear in the court in the FIRs registered against him during the period of militancy and had been declared as absconder by the court.
Instead, Masook fled to Pulwama district of South Kashmir, where he was reportedly working at a private place.
He was arrested today when he returned to Chillad.
Police said Masook is being sent to Joint Interrogation Centre (JIC) at Jammu for sustained questioning.
