They said most of militant cases in Jammu province have been solved with the busting of the three LeT modules.

“We have busted three terror modules of LeT which were running on instructions from across the border. Seven members of the terror network have been arrested. This has given a setback to the LeT in Jammu,” Additional Director General of Police (ADGP), Jammu division, Mukesh Singh told a press conference here.

Two modules were busted in Rajouri district and five members of the LeT were arrested. One module was busted in Jammu district and two LeT members were nabbed, he added.

The LeT module busted in Jammu was in operation for over two years in the Khatika Talab area in the city. It was involved in collection and ferrying of weapons and explosives being dropped via drones from the Pakistani side along the International Border, he said.
