Jammu and Kashmir Police today said four persons including two militants and two over ground workers were arrested in connection with the escape of the LeT militant Naveed Jat alias Hanzula. Even as officials in the State Home Department insisted that Mishra's transfer was in no way linked to the developments in Srinagar Central Jail, well-placed sources asserted that the proposal of his transfer crept in only last evening.

"Naveed, the district commander of LeT in Kulgam was arrested in Yaripora of Kulgam in south Kashmir in June 2014 in a joint operation by Kulgam police, 62 Rashtriya Rifles of the army and 18 Battalion of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) from a hideout in Sharmpora village of Kulgam district", said SSP Kulgam SSP Shridhar Patil.

Rehman disclosed that the service records of the medical staff posted at the jail were being examined by the administrative department in Jammu, and orders of their attachment and replacement were expected by Thursday evening or Friday.

"We have arrested three militants and an OGW involved in this act who include Shakil Ahmed, Tika Khan and Syed Tajamul alias Rahil Kachroo".

Khan said the plan to free Jutt was hatched four months back.

Several local student-athletes signed to continue their athletic careers Wednesday during National Signing Day . The Bulldogs claimed the top spot in the 247Sports rankings by five-star cornerback Tyson Campbell on Monday.

On February 6 they came to Srinagar and took their positions at various points in SMHS hospital with a motorcycle and auto.

"From the hospital, Naveed was dropped on the other side of Abdullah bridge (Rajbagh) and kept at a place and taken to Kakapora in Pulwama district later in the day".

He said that Hilal handed over the revolver to Naveed and both fired at the constables. SSP Shopian Sri Ram Ambedkar said the pictures look recent and cops are verifying them. "They formed the second plan, and as part of it Hilal and Tika Khan visited the central jail several times on one pretext or the other", he said. Another local militant Hilal, whose role has been ascertained in the case, remains at large along with the main accused Naveed.

Explaining that why militants went to such lengths to free Naveed, Khan said that the LeT had lost most of its local leadership and were desperately looking to free one of their jailed colleague to fill the leadership vacuum. The crackdown was stopped after the terrorists outside attacked a jail official's house in Chadoura, Budgam, set his vehicles on fire and threatened his family members to kill him if he continued to commit "atrocities" on the prisoners in his jail.
