Was providing SIM cards and phones for use by the terrorist outfit.
The J&K police has arrested a BSNL employee who was found to be a militant planted by the terrorist outfit Hizbul Mujahideen. His role was to collect SIM cards and WLL phones for use by the outfit's communication network in the north Kashmiri town of Sopore in the Baramulla district.
Sajad Ahmad Dar, who is allegedly an IT expert, had been working with BSNL Sopore on a contract basis for a year. He is suspected of providing 10 SIM cards and one WLL connection to Hizbul militants. His modus operandi involved securing SIM cards and WLL connections on fake names and addresses, and then supplying them to militants. It is suspected that he was helped by another individual in the telecom company who is yet to be identified.
