“The case relates to activities of The Resistance Front (TRF), a frontal outfit of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and its self-styled commander Sajjad Gul who has been actively radicalising, motivating and recruiting youth of J&K to affect violent activities,” reads the official statement.

“He, along with his other associate commanders of LeT based in Pakistan, has been recruiting individuals (Over Ground Workers) to do reconnaissance of pre-determined targets, coordinating and transporting weapons to support LeT and TRF,” it added.

During the searches conducted today, various incriminating materials such as digital devices, SIM cards, digital storage devices, documents etc. have been seized. (ANI)
