SRINAGAR: Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Kashmir range, Vijay Kumar Tuesday said that two hybrid militants have been arrested in connection with the grenade lobbing incident at the Harmain area of Shopian late last night and the hunt for others is on.

Talking to reporters at the site of the incident, ADGP Kumar said that one hybrid militant involved in the act of grenade throwing that led to the killing of two labourers from Uttar Pradesh, was arrested late last night and early morning today, and another one was arrested. “Two persons have been arrested so far and the main accused has confessed to the crime,” Kumar said, adding that a hunt for other members of the group is on and very soon they will be tracked down.
