Reading Time: < 1 minute

Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir police Monday said it has arrested a PhD scholar along with five other militants for launching an abortive suicide car bomb attack on a CRPF convoy along the Jammu-Srinagar national highway last month.
The terror attack was jointly hatched by outfits JeM and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM) under the command of Pakistan-based militant Munna Bihari, Jammu Inspector General of Police M K Sinha told reporters here.
The arrested persons include a PhD scholar who is an active member of Jamiat-e-Talaba, the student wing of banned Jammat-e-Islami (JeI), he said.
His interrogation revealed that the group was engaged in radicalising youths in a big way for “jehad” (hoily war), said Sinha.
He said the National Investigation Agency is taking over the case tomorrow for further investigation. (PTI)
