The brother of a deputy superintendent of police in Jammu and Kashmir and two women have been arrested for involvement in terrorist activities, police said on Wednesday.
The arrests came on the basis of interrogation of five Al-Badr terrorists, including a Pakistani national Azhar Hussain and a woman Gulzar Bibi, nabbed over the past two days.
Farooq Lone, brother of a DSP, was arrested in Jammu on Tuesday evening, Inspector General of Police P L Gupta said.
He said the operation was still on and more arrests were likely.
The two women, Shahana and Ruksana, arrested in Rajouri, were allegedly working as courier of arms and ammunition for the outfit and accompanied the terrorists to avoid detection by security forces, police said, adding they were paid for these tasks.
Hussain and Bibi, who were apprehended at a hotel in Jammu on Monday, were allegedly planning a suicide attack.
