Acting swiftly, police zeroed in on Yousaf and Ashraf who during sustained questioning revealed their links with LeT terrorist Talib Hussain, who had crossed over to Pakistan occupied Kashmir from Mahore over two decades ago, the official said.

He said they were in constant touch with Hussain through social media and were planning and working upon to revive militancy and carry out a major terrorist attack in the Jammu zone.

A huge cache of arms and ammunition including Chinese pistols with magazines, pistol cartridges and grenades were recovered at their disclosure from a hideout, the official said.

He said a case under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and the Arms Act stands registered against the accused.
