Six militants have been arrested in central Kashmir's Budgam district in separate operations during the past two weeks, police said today.           

The militants, identified as Rafiq Ahmad, Javed Ahmad, Muzaffar Ahmad, Mohammad Yaseen, Altaf Mir and Bilal Ahmad Rather, were arrested in the district during the last two weeks in separate operations, police said.

Some of these militants could have been involved in the killing of the Station Head Officer (SHO) Chadoora on December 2 last year, police sources said.       

They said the militants were also planning to carry out attacks at vital installations around Budgam and Chadoora towns of the district.     

Some arms and ammunition have also been recovered from their possession, police said.
