SRINAGAR: A suspected Hizbul Mujahideen militant and a former activist of the outfit who had recently returned from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir via Nepal were arrested in Kashmir at separate places, police said today. 

Tassaduq Rasool Shah, who was affiliated with Hizbul Mujahideen and had crossed over to PoK in 1998 for arms training, was arrested during vehicle checking in Kupwara district’s Handwara area, about 80 kms from here, last night, police said. 

He had recently returned home via Nepal border and was on his way to his residence when he was arrested, the officer said. 

Nearly 500 local youth, mostly with wives and children, have returned from PoK via Nepal after the previous National Conference-led government announced a rehabilitation policy for their return in 2010.
