A constable of the Indian Reserve Police has been arrested for alleged links with the terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Tayiba, the police said.

Sikendar-e-Khan, a constable with 7th battalion of the IRP, was arrested on Thursday evening from the Gandhi Nagar area of Jammu, and a code-sheet and letterheads of the banned terror outfit were recovered from him, official sources said.

The accused, who had earlier been suspended after being detained under the Public Safety Act  for having alleged links with the LeT, was booked under the Unlawful Activities act.

Khan was released from jail a couple of months ago.
