Police on Thursday said it has busted a module of overground workers of Hizbul Mujahideen militant outfit by arresting its two members in Kupwara district.

"Police busted an OGW module of militant outfit HM that was operating in the Lolab area of Kupwara," a police spokesman said.

Acting on a specific input, police detained two persons — Shakir Ahmad Wani and Ghulam Mustafa Sheikh, both residents of Tekipora in Lolab — for questioning, he said.

"The module was engaged in providing logistics support to militants apart from luring youth into the path of militancy," the spokesman said, adding that "after sustained questioning of the duo, a pistol was recovered on their disclosure".
