Jammu and Kashmir police today claimed to have busted a module of Lashker-e-Toiba (LeT), responsible for burning a shrine and a mosque in central Kashmir district of Badgam in July.

A police spokesman said in a release that police busted the terror module by arresting six militants, involved in the burning of a shrine of Baba Haniefuddin Ziarat at Ratsuna and a mosque at Narbal Magam on July 15.

The arrested ultras included --Zahoor Ahmad Khan alias Zubair, Barkat Ahmad Malik alias Abu Talha, Assadullah Dar alias Assad, Aijaz Ahmad Dar alias Imran, Rouf Ahmad Dar alias Rafeeq and Farooq Ahmad.

One of the ultras has recorded his statement before the Judicial Magistrate that he was directed by the Lashker militants in Pakistan to burn the religious places to ignite an agitation like that of 2010, the release said.
