A 33-year-old man was arrested on Monday with two grenades and a detonator outside an Army camp in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district, a senior police official said.
Rajinder Singh, a resident of Kalakote area, had come for a recruitment rally which is underway and was arrested during frisking outside the Army town gate in Surankote, Senior Superintendent of Police, Poonch, Ramesh Kumar Angral told reporters in the border district.
The incident came four days after a Hizbul Mujahideen operative threw a grenade at a bus station in Jammu. The attack left one person dead and two critically injured.
Angral said the police have registered a First Information Report against Singh, who is being questioned. Singh has been booked under provisions of the Explosives Act, The Times Of India reported.
Singh told the police that he had worked as an Army porter for a while and had come to participate in the recruitment rally. The police will establish his motives and where he procured the explosives from, Angral said. “We are open to all the angles and a thorough investigation is on in the case,” he added.
