A woman wearing a burqa, who threw a petrol bomb at a bunker of security forces in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore, has been arrested. The woman has been identified as Haseena Akhtar, a resident of Baramulla, who is allegedly associated with the banned women’s separatist group Dukhtaran-e-Milat. Police said that he is already facing three cases under UAPA.
Let us tell you that this attack on Tuesday was caught on camera. Its video is becoming increasingly viral on social media. In fact, in the CCTV footage of the Central Reserve Police Force camp in Sopore town of Baramulla district, the woman can be seen stopping in the middle of the road and taking out a bomb and throwing the purse she had taken with her in the camp.
Police said the bomb had fallen outside the security barricades and there was no loss of life or property. Police said the woman was associated with banned women’s separatist group Dukhtaran-e-Milat and was released on bail a few months back.
Significantly, soon after the petrol bomb attack, the police had said that they had identified the woman. But she managed to evade arrest for two days. A senior police officer from Kashmir, Vijay Kumar said, “She was evading arrest after this terror incident, but today she has been arrested by Sopore police and further investigation is on.”
Kumar said the woman’s husband was also involved in stone pelting in the past and was arrested under the Public Safety Act.
