Indian police intercept weapons headed for Kashmir – News

Police said the men were affiliated to Jaish-e-Mohammed.

Three men suspected of belonging to a militant organisation were arrested on Thursday transporting weapons and ammunition towards Kashmir, police said.

Police intercepted the men early Thursday and seized four AK-56 assault rifles, two AK-47s, 6 magazines and 180 rounds, said police official Shridhar Patil.

“The truck was coming from (Indian state of) Punjab and was on its way to Kashmir. We are investigating where exactly they picked up the ammunition from,” Patil told a news conference.

Police said the men, all residents of Kashmir, were affiliated to Jaish-e-Mohammed, the militant group that claimed a suicide bombing in February that killed 40 Indian troops.
